What themes do you predict for the poetry section for the GCSE 2019 paper? Love and death have already come up, haven't they?

i do english with eduqas/wjec exam board so idk if you forgot to put the eduqas or whatever lol
in 2016, it was 'to autumn'. in 2017, it was 'sonnet 43'. in 2018, it was 'mametz wood'. so the three themes that have already been done are nature, love, and war/death. many of the teachers at my school believe that it might be a power and conflict poem, but, you never know, so i'd still suggest revising like 2 poems from each of the main themes, just in case

Thanks. And I did mean Eduqas - just forgot to put it in.
Also, what other themes are there and could come up, apart from environment, time, loss and power?

Literally any theme and any poem could come up, I wouldn't rely solely on predictions because exam boards can be unpredictable and do nature or love again, for instance. I would just choose a few poems to learn really well that are very flexible and encompass the main themes of love, nature, power & conflict, and war

Our teacher did ‘Sense of Place’ with us recently because that’s apparently a thing. Although the only two poems that would fit into this category are Living Space and London. I hope it’s power however, that would be best case scenario in my opinion

I agree. power or the theme of loss would be ideal, for there are lots of poems you could use for them.

yes I think so, last year it was the anniversary of Mametz Wood in Wales so it was fairly predictable

just learn around 3 or 4 quotations on 2 poems in each topic, which results in around 12 to 16 quotations, and then learn some context for them

They have to make it accessible for anyone no matter what their target, 1-9 so I reckon they will do nature or power which isn’t helpful because what actually is ozymandias and hawk roosting

You could use poems for completely unrelated themes just as long as you back up what you say
