Does anyone recommend any revision guides or websites for the following plays/poems:

- King Lear
- Death of a Salesman
- poetry by John Keats

On the other hand, if you think revision guides are useless just say (debating whether to lose £20 on revision guides hehe)

You could always try and find the PDF for the revision guides online rather than forking out the money for it if you're not sure it'll work for you.

Sparknotes, Shmoop, and other websites like this are often good for revision for the texts. You can also directly google the plays/poems' names and there will be loads of websites where people have commented with general analysis, particularly for the poems.

I managed an A* at A-level literature without a single revision guide; I just worked hard looking online, discussing interpretations in class, and reading the texts myself to develop interpretations.
