    Please could I have some help with a query.

    I am doing GCSE and have to compare poems. When I refer to two different poets, eg Browning and Hardy, and I want to say in an essay 'Both poets use enjambment...' do I need to use an apostrophe between the t and the s in poets, or not at all. Help please, confused...


    No you don't apostrophes are used to show possession, so if you said 'the poet's poem' you would use one but since you mean 'poets' as in more than one, you don't need an apostrohe. Hope this makes sense x
