- Appealing poem-by-poem worksheets guide students through the entire collection, allowing them to gain understanding and analytical skills while remaining engaged
- Post-reading activities explore connections across the collection, covering topics such as: • war and conflict • patriarchy • nature • gender and motherhood • death, transcendence and resistance • critical reception
“A really useful resource which isn’t rivalled elsewhere on the market. Useful to both students and teachers alike. This matches [the specification] exactly. I really liked the fact that the writer has taken the trouble to offer points of comparison between this text and the novel texts too. This makes life much easier for the students and as a teacher it reassured me that I have been identifying the correct comparisons! I also like the way that it links the poems to the possible categories of identity thrown up by the AQA suggested topics.” – K Chanter, Head of English and Independent Reviewer
