    Conflict Cluster - conflict, confusion, patriotism, aftermath on war, how war effects an person etc.

    Use of the lexi's, the words. The reader's choice of "line length", how this reflects the tone/mood of the poem. There's also a lot of literary, poetic devices you can elaborate on (not required to maximum level however)

    Im not entirely sure what might come up. In my exam on Monday it was either the theme of conflict or 'how does the relationship of Sheila and Gerald change'. Inspector Calls normally focuses on the characters so if you can revise them, you will often be able to relate their actions to the themes of guilt, responsibility etc.

    Can anyone answer this question as im unsure what poems as im not doing poetry. I would say that the best thing to do for revision though it to take the poems you know you could brush up on and do so. There's no point in looking over the ones you know well, as it may not help as much as it would to develop your understanding of others. I know this isn't very helpful, however its all iv'e got.

    Conflict - this is really variable. You can't say a poem coming up, but you need to know the context/which theme they will pick out because thats what resonates with the answer. However, its Belfast Confetti, Futility, Charge of Light Brigade, Poppies and Falling leaves - the only ones I revised and thank god because they're the higher tier so the most challenging ones, the rest I will do via common sense tbh :P Good luck!
