Dear kind people who are reading this,
I'm starting my sixth form this September and I've never really understood metres, the stresses, the rhythms and so on. Could someone be so kind as to either provide me a website which explains it very, very clearly or could you guys tell me what you need to know about poetry in A-Level? It'd be very helpful and also the kind of q's you get and any exemplar essays for the poems? I want to be super prepared. I don't want to be behind not knowing these things. Thanks guys!

i suppose the way you look at poetry will vary between exam boards?? we haven't started poetry yet in english lit but most exam board websites will have exemplar essays publicly available- i know that aqa do and i'm pretty sure they've got some which discuss poetry and prose.
kind of questions will depend on the exam board. for example, i'm on aqa spec b and we do tragedy and crime- we're only studying one poetry text which is crime and all the other texts are prose. we have the option in the crime paper of either doing a 25 marker on the poem, or discussing it alongside another text as a 25 marker. you likely will be doing poetry as part of your coursework.
i'm sorry if this wasn't helpful
