    I need serious help!
    My teacher has been teaching us the wrong poems for the Lyrical Ballads and because of this, I only know about 10 out of the 24 poems Im supposed to. So could anyone please explain these poems, what they're about, what I could say about them, what themes I could talk about. I have read over them but I've hardly had any time because I only found out last week and I've got other exams to study for.
    Thank you!
    Poems:
    Goody Blake and Harry Gill
    Lines written at a small distance from my house
    The Thorn
    Lines written near Richmond
    The Tables Turned
    The complaint of a forsaken indian woman
    The convict
    The fostermothers tale
    The Nightingale
    The Dungeon.

    First of all, learning everything about 24 poems is absurd. For the exam you can get away with knowing in depth analysis of about 5-6 poems (if that); there's therefore no need to learn every single poem. Instead pick out some themes and apply several poems for each.
    Secondly, there's already like 3 other threads, one of which has the same title so maybe you should get some advice from there.

    Well look at the structure. Is it a quatrain? Iambic? Trochaic? reference to metre - does it give the poem a flow? Enjambement? Archaic structure? is it a ballad? a sonnet? How does this structure help C/WW convey their ideas.
