What I've been doing is to focus on the tragic elements of each poem and almost write out the comparisons between them. So, for example, using setting as a tragic aspect, 'Lamia' opens "on the shores of Crete", which is known for tragic myths like Icarus. Whereas, 'La Belle Dame sans Merci' takes place on a cold hillside, where "no birds sing". I've found that making these sort of comparisons helps me to talk about the poems both individually and together.
Also with things like the ambiguity of tragic heroes, villains, and victims across the poems, and how each one compares. And then quote wise, for each of these points I usually find a short quote to write alongside it to help me remember. And then I'll get someone else to either read me the quote, and then I have to answer with the explanation, or someone will say the explanation and I'll have to reply with the quote.
But everyone revises differently, so you could also focus on specific themes within the poem of love or death and learn them that way?
I hope this helps!
good luck with your revision!
