I will definitely do my A2 English Lit coursework on Wuthering Heights, as I absolutely love the book.

However, I also want to compare the novel to the work of a poet. Are there any recommendations of a poet whose poems share similarities to Wuthering Heights?

I was thinking of creating an essay that discusses suffering, a lack of civilisation or love as a theme to reveal other subtexts, so any poet who has a range of poetry that deals with this would be nice to know of.

Either Carol Ann Duffys The Worlds Wife or Ted Hugh's Birthday Letters are usually good combinations.

Thanks for the suggestions - I have now decided to use TS Elliot's The Wasteland and one of his other poems of a similar nature.

Hello, well there are many poems out there like withering heights but this is your controlled assessment it would be against tsr regulations to help you, some students may get the odd disadvantage. You can do a google search that may help you

A level does not have controlled assessments. Controlled assessments are when students do a piece of coursework-type but under times conditions at GCSE level only. A level coursework allows students to plan and draft, get it marked and redraft and etc.

So, don't know where you got your information from, but it's not correct.
