Remains is one of my favourites! I loved the poem and was one of the best to talk about. I never really had an opinion of COTLB. It was not exactly bad but not good either. Poppies was bad. I hated that one.

I voted for The Prelude. I absolutely hated it. The poem itself was boring and dull, didn't like what it was about and it was terrible to analyze. I would have actually died if this came up last year.

SOTI was a good poem, but I always felt it would have been a bad one to have to analyze. I disliked the kamikaze. It never really clicked with me to be honest, although it was good to talk about in an exam.

I quite liked that one! I liked the poem itself and it was always a good one to analyze.

It was just weird and I just hated it so much. No one in my class (the teacher included) seemed to like it either.

That is a bit unlucky!

My Last Duchess was alright I guess, but I just thought it was too long. I could never be bothered to read it all.

I was considering doing A-Level English Literature... until I realised I didn't actually like GCSE English Lit that much.

Speaking of The Prelude, when we were covering it in class, everyone was laughing because of "She was an elfin pinnace". You know what "elfin pinnace" sounds like?

That mean you could link it feudian's theory which was about sexual things.

Especially since Wordsworth also uses the word 'lustily', which relates to sex.

Exactly, and adding such theory could mean a boost in your marks and having quotes/moments to back this theory would help the examiner know you're pretty damn smart.

But the poem is still mega boring.
