    Does anyone have any resources that would help with unseen poetry? The exam is in 10 hours and I still don't have a clue what you're supposed to do.

    TL;DW, comment on the title, make notes of literary devices, always try and talk about any contrasts, examiners also like it when candidates use enjambment (if a poem 'flows' or not)
    Any semi-intellectual comment on the unseen is given credit, the examiners can't expect everyone to 'get' the poem so you basically get credit for anything.

    Good luck for tomorrow!
