Hi, for unseen Poetry A, you must compare the speakers feelings in two poems. To do so choose a good quote that you can fully analyse with terminology and the methods used to present the feelings. You could also write about what the effects have on the reader and always spend five minutes or so reading over the poem(s) to understand the message and meaning as to why the writer wrote it.

I hope this helps!

What I do to improve my writing techniques, is to read other peoples' online essays on the same book or context I'm studying. For unseen poetry, you can practise analyzing poems you already know and practice understanding the effects of a certain literary device for e.g.: the metaphor for death 'silent land' portrays death as a calm transition to the next life, which is reinforced by the adjective, 'silent.' Silent has connotations such as peace and relaxing. The poet's choice of the word 'land' also gives the reader an idea that death is a more 3-dimensional setting and so forth that maybe makes the reader more interested in the poem.
Also Litcharts or BBC bitesize on inspector calls are great websites, although Litcharts have more info based on characters and themes.
Another tip is to create a mindmap and write down quotes based on a character or theme, then revise it. I hope this helps x
