Anyone got any predictions for what will come up?
It seems every year people say Easter 1916 but it is a major poem so it's bound to come up soon!

BTW! For everyone that doesn't know already, here are the poems that have come up already:
Wild swans (2012)
Broken Dreams (2013)
The Second Coming (2013)
Man and the echo (2014)

And remember, they could be really, really mean and ask us on a poem they've already used! I wouldn't be surprised tbh...

Do you really think they'd do that and use one of the poems already used?

I can almost guarantee they won't reuse a poem.

I think it's going to be September, reason being we have not had any political poems/questions.

Go through the poems one by one and pick out key quotes then analyse them

Hey, basically for Frankenstein, go with the theme and just remember to quote. Likely to be on science, women or nature. For yeats, just remember to link to other poems and do good AO2 analysis as that's where the bulk of the marks are. Good luck
