i have a question about english literature gcseWatch this thread
As far as I know this depends on your course ie: the exam board and the type of poetry anthology you have to analyse
You may also have to analyse an unseen poem in the exam but this depends.
Look on exam board websites for a better idea but will this so others can offer you more guidance !
