I did power and conflict, found it extremely tedious - mostly gore and war. Though I did not study love and relationships, from flicking through my friends anthologies I'd say that is the more interesting option. Plus you're more likely to know the poems already.

i was just flicking through my anthology and found power and conflict slightly more interesting.... and i feel it might be slightly easier to compare poems? am i wrong?

We're different people, so we probably have different preferences. To be perfectly honest, I can't remember details about what I did during my English Lit lessons, but from what I recall many of the poems were hard to grasp; they had many different meanings depending on how you interpreted in (one I remember distinctly was 'Tissue') However, the fact you find Power and Conflict more interesting probably gives you your answer. More likely to do well if you enjoy what you're doing

Just have a look through them. I would prefer Power and Conflict. For either then buy Mr Buffs book.

I’m doing power and conflict at the moment and the poems aren’t too bad. The cluster seems more interesting than the love and relationships cluster (but that’s just my opinion). But it’s up to you so read through all the power & choose whichever you prefer

I personally did love and relationships and didn't have an option for power and conflict but I found there was a lot to write about with the love poems, especially relating to themes of nature and ideas about structure. The love poems are relatively easy to understand and unpick so I would say love poems are a good shout, however that may just be my personal opinion. I also used Mr Bruff's videos and came out with a 9. Whatever you choose, good luck!

wow! congrats on the 9!, i think eventhough most answers came back with power, i am going to go with love, as i agree, you can relate them to themes of nature,etc.

I did Power and Conflict and actually really enjoyed it and ended up with an 8 in English Literature! To be fair though, I have always preferred talking about darker themes (war, loss, psychological trauma, death, societal injustice, etc) as opposed to love- which is a subject I didn’t (and still don’t) have much knowledge about or experience in! It also depends on what cluster of poems you find easier to compare and, obviously, what thematic preferences you have.
