I am currently doing A level English literature, I have to choose a pre 1900s book and a post 1900s to do my coursework on. Does anyone have any tips on what texts or poems to pick( preferably short ones ) as I don’t have much time.

I am on spec A.

Thank you

I did a collection of poems by Wilfred Owen. A lot of his poems are short. I also did The Go-Between by L.P Hartley which has a storyline that’s easy to understand. Hopefully that helps 😂

AQA have a handy poem anthology resource book. This was very helpful when I was revising for my exam in English. What I really found particularly useful was to highlight key words and create practice questions that are based on the themes of the poems on flashcards etc.
Again read beyond the lines of the poem to detect any hidden meanings and as for themes of the poem in question. Go back over the poem and list them one by one. Poetry analysis is easy once you know how and what to expect. Discuss the set poems as well.
