I'm struggle to revise for this, I've spent about 2hrs today watching Youtube videos analysing the Character and Voice cluster poems, I got through about 10 of the 15 poems. But I'd like to try and look at all the different themes and list the poems that they apply to, and then maybe draw some comparisons between poems with the same theme. For example one theme is of course Power, which applies to Medusa, Ozymandias, Les Grand Seigneurs, River God and so on, another one is Isolation - The Hunchback In the park, Clown Punk Another one might be change - Alison casehistory, Les Grand Seigneurs, Give etc. So can somebody perhaps provide me with a list of the main themes. Also what is the best way to revise for the 36 marker?

Practise makes perfect (You`ve probably heard that a million times lol)
Check out example answers to give you an idea of what to add for high marks, and also google the individual poems as alternative interpretations get higher marks!
To revise, dont just watch videos, make flashcards/small notes where you summarise the main themes and just go over them, maybe ask family/friends to test you on it?
Hope that helps

Mm, I wish I'd started earlier. I have Physics Geography, Busienss, Both Lit papers to prepare for this week, I won't have time to anymore than 2/3 hours now and I have to prepare for all of the poems and how to answer the question... getting really stressed out

I'd be happy with a B in this, It's the only exam I don't think I'll get an A or higher In, I'd like to keep it all A's and higher but I don't know what to do, I can't just not revise for everything else?
