    Hello everyone! I'm a first year student of English Literature and I'm freaking out about my Poetry module...
    The thing is, that, my first language is not English. Yes, I always have a dictionary on hand, but in the end of the year we are going to be examined on a unknown poem, as well. So, how am I supposed to analyse the poem if I don't know half of its words...? Well, I really want to try my best so, I guess I have to learn as many literary/"poetry" words as possible?

    Are there any resources available? I didn't manage to find anything relevant... Please, don't get confused...I am not talking about literary devices, just words that are not used in today's English but are, like, heavily used in poetry from Chaucer to the Romantics and up to the Present...

    Thank you in advance!
