Hmmm... Well, what I did was instead of learning masses and masses of quotations, I did scene by scene analysis. For example, if I thought a certain scene was important I would draw up a table and analyse the language and structure, then I would talk about context relevant to the passage, I would do this for seven to eight scenes in the novel/play, and then once I got the hang of it- I would jot everything down in bullet points onto post-it notes (Like instead of writing down the analysis of the language, I would jot down all the subject terminology related to the passage). For poems- don't bother learning the whole thing, simply a few quotations here and there. I think reading everything over and over again, is a helpful technique, blurting is very useful as well... however, don't forget to have a few quotations of other scenes that are less important as well, just in case.
Hope it helps

Best way to remember it all it to try to really enjoy your texts and engage with them, one of the best forms of revision in terms of remembering for english lit in my opinion is to watch the film/tv versions of your texts as many times as possible. I think it just really helps cement quotes and story lines in your head For things like poetry or the actual analysis of quotations, I'd recommend making word documents containing key quotes and their analysis as revision notes, and definitely try and learn the skill of analysis rather than memorisation. That means if you get stuck in the exam you can still work through it on the spot! Hope this helps

Oof, I remember doing An Inspector Calls, I hated it :/
Try and make a bunch of quotes per character, a few per theme and a few extra for certain interesting/important things you may have picked up on. Write them on revision cards and get a friend to test you maybe three times a day. Make a mind map with all the potential arguments and contexts you may want to explore in your essay/exam so you don't get too caught up in remembering just quotes. Try listening to youtube videos and podcasts that explain the poetry and the texts in detail, since you can remember something better if you have a thorough understanding of it.
Good luck!
