AQA Anthology of Poetry Power and Conflict : The Poetry Guide
This is an extremely helpful, well-organised aid to the study of the 'Power and Conflict' poems set for GCSE. It offers detailed, insightful analysis and prepares students in a very methodical way for the exam, suggesting comparisons between the poems and giving examples of exam questions. My only reservation is that if students rely on this solely they may stifle their own, individual response to the poems and end up regurgitating the material which so many others will also have access to. This, however, is a drawback wth all study aids and the intelligent student will know how to use this guide without limiting their own creative input.
