I'll make this brief.

We all know memorising poetry sucks. The best approach will be to group the poems into about 3 or 4 groups, have a strong understanding of each poem in the group and then memorise quotes for 2 poems in a group, so that you are covered whatever comes up.

I am personally studying power and conflict cluster, but if you are studying the other (relationships??) feel free to add that too. But please add your grouping of the poems into 3-4 big groups, and if you like identify two that would be easier to memorise !

We have to work together to do this!

For power and conflict
The main ones I'm remembering are
1)Ozymandias because its a small poem with lots to talk about it has everything Structure, language and context. You can talk about how power crumbles, 3 different speakers, the rhymes, the biblical allusions and much more
2)My last Duchess same reasons as Ozymandias it has a lot to talk about. You can talk about the enjambments, the lack of power the duke has, the rhymes and more
3)London because of the 4 line each stanza, the juxtapositions, the context of London being controlled by the rich and more.
4)Charge of the light brigade: The repetition of "Rode the 600", form, biblical allusions and more
Lastly
5)Kamikaze: there isn't as much to talk about for this one but I found it easy to remember so that's my main 5
