I'm in year 11, and I'm struggling to remember all the content for this section of the course. I've got a load of poems, and I have to learn key quotes, context, and form for each one.

I was thinking of making flashcards for them all.

I don't want to be putting too much effort in, as I think that it is so much to learn for such a little part of one subject. I'm certainly not aspiring to do super well in literature, a pass will do.

I just wanted to hear how others have approached this.

Honestly, when you’ve analysed them once, you can just test yourself on them. Choose a random poem and write down as much as you remember about it from memory (quotes, themes, context, etc)
In order to remember, you need to test yourself and other ‘active’ ways of learning. Staring at the poem will not help you at all.
