Hi Jess,
For people to give you better ideas you could clarify whether you are currently studying those poems or you did so sometime ago.
If you are currently studying them, here are some tips that could help you remember the poems;
-Read the poems multiple times, focusing on key words and phrases that stand out to you in each poem.
-Develop a list of important points from each poem -- these could be key lines, characters, settings, etc
-If you have time, try to summarize each poem in your own words to ensure you understand and remember the main ideas
-Recite the poems aloud - this will help you both with memorisation as well as understanding how the poet has crafted the work for maximum effect.
-Where possible, try to connect the poems to your own (or other people's) experiences so they become more meaningful and easier to remember.
Create a short summary which contains all the features of each individual poem. I am linear, while others do maps. I would go to 'A-level' in between GCSE and Grow your grades. Scroll down and press English then find resource. I would then see what written about the Poetry Anthology and perhaps check each individual poems. I read the analysis in google search, on you tube and locate a recording or if one was not available make one myself.
or GetRevising.co.uk

Summary contains this

AO1: Read, understand and respond to texts. Students should be able to:
maintain a critical style and develop an informed personal response
use textual references, including quotations, to support and illustrate interpretations.
AO2: Analyse the language, form and structure used by a writer to create meanings and effects,
using relevant subject terminology where appropriate.
AO3: Show understanding of the relationships between texts and the contexts in which they
were written.
AO4: Use a range of vocabulary and sentence structures for clarity, purpose and effect, with
accurate spelling and punctuation.

From my summary I will write an essay plan that covers all the A01
I will also listen if possible to the audio of the poem being read.

In addition if possible to theory videos.

Revise around 4 in detail “with quotations” for comparison and remember features of the rest of them “not quotes just meaning” in case they come up on the paper.
