Latin A-level

I just started Latin A-level this year and I'm having trouble with my translation and analysis of the set texts -- I've had soo many covers and I'm having to teach it all myself (since I'm the only person in my year that takes Latin.)

I've found translations online (on quizlets etc) but I can't seem to find anything for analysis -- does anyone have any tips on how to solve this, or how to find better resources?

Thank you!
oh yeah you should check out Bloomsbury Latin commentaries: https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/series/latin-texts/
use z-library if you want them for free
also the Cambridge Green and Yellow series (really good introductions - super informative) on latin texts. the commentary section of the books (with the literary analysis notes) is really detailed and more undergraduate level than a level. Also on z-library if u don't want to pay lol
good luck!
