Revision

To help you prepare for your exams, I’ve listed a few tips and helpful links. We will be discussing revision in more detail in our final two seminars.

Click here for a list of suggested topics you may like to consider

Click here to see some past RVP exam papers. Note that in your exam, you are not allowed to substantially repeat information that you included in your assessed essays.

Make sure that you are familar with some the poems we have looked at through the course of the seminar series and the contextual background of these poems

Practice your close reading skills by analysing some poems you are less famiilar with

Familarise yourself with the terminology used to discuss poetry and the use of certain techniques to create particular effects. James Fenton’s An Introduction to English Poetry and Rhian Williams’ The Poetry Toolkit are both excellent guides. Whilst Fenton’s book will guide you in your consideration of form, Williams’ book contains several examples of close poetic analysis.
