How are you revising? Who else is learning about Plath's poetry? The exam is getting scarily close now, although in a way I'm looking forward to it!?

Yep thats me!

I've chosen 12 Plath poems that I think generally cover all the main themes, and I'm going to revise them specifically... How about you?

Hi I'm doing a similar thing, mainly revising poems which cover the main themes. I'm hoping a question on the use of the 'Natural World' might come up but who knows. I'm also matching Plath poems up to some of Ted Hughes' poems with similar themes. Ahh wasn't Plath a happy writer lol (!).

I've been looking at Daddy, Birthday Present, Facelift, Tulips and Mirror for Identity. Which poems would you use for fatherhood?

I am, but I'm not really revising. I don't know how. That's not really good.
What play are you doing? I'm doing Arcadia.

Well, Daddy of course. Then I'd probably go with Full Fathom Five. For Hughes I'd take 'Being Christlike' and 'The Bee God'. I'm trying to limit myself to just 2 poems for Plath cos otherwise I tend to not go deep enough. And also the mark schemey people suggested it

As for the play, I'm doing Miller's Broken Glass. It's good =]

I find the best way of revising for English lit. seems to be making notes on themes and putting certain poem's/scene's together with others both from the same author and another related poem/fact relating to context. Also doing plenty of practise papers is helpful. English is meant to be one of the hardest subjects to revise 'tho.
I'm doing Murmuring Judges as the play.

Thanks lauralegend, that helps as I hadn't really thought of fatherhood as a theme for some reason.
