Hi! I was wondering what are the best ways to revise for Hamlet and Keats as my mocks will be in may and I want to do my best in them the only info we get is that the questions, for Hamlet, are a choice of a character or theme whereas Keats is a poem comparison.

I do A-Level English Lit, where we study Keats and have to do a comparison with a play. I don't know if I do the same poems as you, but the way I revise Keats is by attempting to break down each poem into ideas that could possibly be used in comparison, so from things like setting/ roles of characters/ semantic fields/ particularly imagery etc.
And then after I've picked these out I make flashcards for each section with quotes from each poem, preferably memorable ones, that can be used (particularly good if a quote fits in with more than one topic).

As for Hamlet, my Shakespeare play is Othello, but we still focus on character and themes. So, I create a quote bank for each character, and then another one for each theme that could potentially come up. So, for example, my GCSE text was Macbeth so themes were on things like ambition, role of women, the supernatural, fate, violence etc. I haven't read Hamlet, but many Shakespearian tragedies have similar themes so it'll probably be the same kind of ideas.
