I am resitting this for a second time round in May
I am now being encouraged to use Rossetti poems for the section B part of the exam because the new AS year is.
Unfortunately I have missed all teaching of these poems!!
I wondered if anybody could send me any analysis / useful documents on these poems:
a royal princess
I have applied for English Literature at University and so it's really important for me to not mess this up the final time round!!

I'm self teaching my self Rossetti so I understand the stress of missing out points.
What I do is read the poem. Go online for a summary (just to make sure I actually understand what's going on) then I re read with the following points:
Point of view
Scenes and places
Time and sequence
And the basic GCSE stuff like:
I really hate the amount of times I have to read the damn poems but it really does make it vivid and you remember it
I also look for
Pathetic fallacy (goes under language really)
After this I basically know the poem and have all this on a mind map of bullet points ready to re-read.
Sorry I can't give you specific details on the poems but I hope this helps if someone can't.
Best of luck & I hope you get the grades you want for Uni.
