We've had a substitute for a while now and the students in the school I go to make it impossible for a substitute to actually teach properly. So I really need to know what poems I need to study to prepare for my English exam. So could anyone please help? :/

It's for: English AQA Language paper and Literature paper. The ones I do know I have to learn are: The Laboratory, Sonnet 130, Not My Business, Search for my Tongue, Havisham, Kid, Anne Hathaway, Hitcher, Half-caste.

But there's a lot more I don't know about. Could anyone give me a list, please?

You have to learn all the Cluster 2 poems from the Different cultures

Unfortunately I am unable to answer the lit poems as I am studying Heaney and Clarke.

Does this mean you don't have to learn the other poems by Duffy and Armitage? Or this like a prediction of what poems will come up...

Not necessarily. But if you want to learn the other poems by Duffy and Armitage, you can. Those poems are just the main ones you have to learn to have something decent to compare.

Does anyone know where I can find general poem analysing/comparing techniques or notes on poems and what things they have, such as symbolism and metaphors?
