Which ones link to the most poems in order to decrease the number learned in depth?

I will still learn the context and some basic things for all poems though.

Forgot to say I'm doing AQA Power and Conflict

Probably Kamikaze and War Photogropher. Both effects of conflict and loss and absence which most the poems are about. All the poems are about 'Power and Conflict' so you can really compare any of them

Would Ozymandias work for one about the power of nature and humans?
And Exposure for the reality and effects of war (even though those likely won't come up this year)?

Is there any I could replace Kamikaze with? I really can't talk about it.

Yes I think you can use Ozymandias to talk about the Power of Humans. Like the negative effects the ruler had that made him 'not last in anyone's memory' like in London with the 'mind forged manacles' created by there ruler.
And yeah Exposure for the reality of war. How traumatizimg it was.

So Exposure for War, Ozymandias for Power, Poppies for loss. What other themes could come up?

hello
i got a 9 in GCSE english lit. last year and i studied the same poetry cluster. bayonet charge was the named poem in our exam so it's highly unlikely that's the one you'll get. i chose to compare it to remains, which i found was a very useful poem to have revised in great depth as it fits in with themes of war/loss/effects of war afterwards. i would definitely also choose one of the power of nature based ones - storm on the island/ozymandias/the prelude. i would spend less time on poppies/tissue as they are the more ambiguous, so if they were named you could kinda warp your points to fit.
would highly recommend you check out mr buff's grade 9 analysis videos on youtube. i used them to annotate my anthology, and i mean it seemed to work! lots of interesting and unusual points.
best of luck!
