People have been talking about Come on, Come back and Yellow Palm. I would put some emphasis on those two poems although make sure you know the gist of every poem, as you probably already know anything can come up in these AQA exams.

I'd suggest focusing on Les Grands Seigneurs and On a Portrait of a Deaf Man. However, you should definitely go over as many other poems as you can to be safe. One way I get high marks is by trying to think of some unique interpretations for a small number of contrasting poems so you can always use one of these interpretations in the exam (For example, I can almost always spam one of my Casehistory: Alison (head injury) ones and get about 33/36).

The structure I mainly follow is (note that I don't always need to strictly follow it):

Poem A says that '...'. This suggests that '...'. The word '...' has connotations of '...'. This would make the reader feel '...' because '...'. Similarly/In contrast, Poem B makes the reader feel '...'. Poem B says that '...'. This suggests that '...'. The word '...' has connotations of '...'. This would make the reader feel '...' because '...'. I think that Poem A/Poem B is more effective in making the reader feel '...' because '...'.

You can certainly add it in if you want (you don't have to completely follow the structure. I think that my structure should just be something to help you along while writing the essay, and you're free to explore other points in the process of writing)
