    York notes do a book on poems from other cultures.

    Other than that, you just gotta figure them out for yourselves really. just keep on reading them outloud and things come to you.

    There's an OKish book for Cultures, probably the one FireDeuce mentioned, it's A5 and has a black and white cover. It's useful to make a list of possible themes which could be questioned, and compare all the poems which could fall under each theme - similarities and differences, you know. Many people find it useful to annotate each poem, makes it easier to remember for some people. Maybe discuss them with other people - tends to get the ideas going.

    I'm doing AQA B, and teachit has some notes on the pre-release. They also have notes on last year's poetry from other cultures, half of which is on this year's paper, so you could have a look at that...

    Does anyone have an Amazon link to the York Notes book about the poems?

    "These poems are in the exact order they are in AQA GCSE English Specification A Anthology."

    I think these are for Spec A.

    I personally don't think they have one for Spec B, since it changes every year?

    Hey, don't complain. Not everyone has all the answers, and if it was that easy, then you would have found it yourself by now. You can't just expect people to come up with answers for all your questions.
