what poems do you have to learn
Moved to GCSEs for you :awesome:
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 :bump: this so others can offer you more guidance !

For AQA GCSE English Literature, you will be learning a cluster of poems from either "Power and Conflict" or "Love and Relationships," that span a time period between 1789 and modern day. In total, you will be expected to "know" 15 poems.

Here are the "Power and Conflict" poems:
  1. Percy Bysshe Shelley – Ozymandias
  2. William Blake – London
  3. William Wordsworth – Extract from, The Prelude
  4. Robert Browning – My Last Duchess
  5. Alfred Lord Tennyson – The Charge of the Light Brigade
  6. Wilfred Owen – Exposure
  7. Seamus Heaney – Storm on the Island
  8. Ted Hughes – Bayonet Charge
  9. Simon Armitage – Remains
  10. Jane Weir – Poppies
  11. Carol Ann Duffy – War Photographer
  12. Imtiaz Dharker – Tissue
  13. Carol Rumens – The Émigrée
  14. John Agard – Checking Out Me History
  15. Beatrice Garland – Kamikaze





And here are the "Love and Relationship" poems:
  1. Lord Byron – When We Two Parted
  2. Percy Bysshe Shelley – Love’s Philosophy
  3. Robert Browning – Porphyria’s Lover
  4. Elizabeth Barrett Browning – Sonnet 29 – ‘I think of thee!’
  5. Thomas Hardy – Neutral Tones
  6. Maura Dooley – Letters From Yorkshire
  7. Charlotte Mew – The Farmer’s Bride
  8. Cecil Day Lewis – Walking Away
  9. Charles Causley – Eden Rock
  10. Simon Armitage – Mother, any distance
  11. Carol Ann Duffy – Before You Were Mine
  12. Owen Sheers – Winter Swans
  13. Daljit Nagra – Singh Song!
  14. Andrew Waterhouse – Climbing My Grandfather







I myself did the "Power and Conflict" poems for my English Literature exam. Whilst I have no plan of continuing English Literature at A-Level, feel free to PM me if you need any help with power and conflict.

what poems do you have to learn
Ask your teacher what exam board you are doing and which poetry collection. there are three or four sets. Conflict or Love and relationships are the two most popular.
