Hello, I'm currently in year 12 and I'm having to pick a poetry collection and theory to study for my coursework. I'm totally clueless, if anyone has any ideas about a literally theory or poetry collection pls tell me.

The theories involve: Feminsim, Marxism, pos-colonial, narrative, literally canon and ecocritical.

But I am struggling to find the right one, pls help if you've already done this x

i was on AQA for english lit a level and didn’t have to do that.

my year 12 coursework included choosing a novel and writing as to why it should be considered for the literary canon.

my year 13 one was more to do with what you’re talking about. except we had to write about two poems from Sylvia Plath’s poetry collection ‘Ariel’ and link them to a theory.

so idk if my teacher just chose that collection for us to make it easier. but that might be a good idea

Oh that's so good, we have to pick a poetry collection and a text but thank you for the suggestion, I will definitely search it and look into it, thank you. So did you use the literary canon for sylvia platt?

no. i chose a novel for the literary canon, for example people chose things like Room, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby etc

then i used Sylvia Plath for my Y13 one and related two of the poems from her collection to feminism

Maybe consider Larkin for literary canon, or Hughes for Ecocritical. Blake for Marxism? Depends whether you're English Literature A or B and what choices you've got for the others

My boyfriend had to do 'The Fat Black Woman's Poems' by Grace Nichols in his coursework, and I believe it fits into both feminism and post-colonial theories.
