I need advice for the English literature poetry exam tomorrow.
I need to know for the comparison of the poems from the anthology if I should use the ideas that are generic, e.g those found on BBC bite size, or my own interpretations of the poems, or both.
I know we get told to be "original" but I don't want to risk loosing marks because my ideas are too absurd, as my interpretations of poems, aren't really those taken on by a lot of people.
I would appreciate any responses (:.

No idea is too absurd IF it can be backed up with relevant quotations.
Try to make points that aren't too basic - as in, things that you don't think everyone else in the country will write. BBC Bitesize and revision guides are fine for this as long as you use even slightly complex points.
