Power and Conflict Poetry Anthology List; remember that these poems need to be learned in detail, with a focus on how they relate to the themes of ‘power’ and ‘conflict’ — try to think deeply about the messages on these themes that are present in each one. You also need to learn how to write a comparative essay, as in the exam you have to compare one given poem with another from your own memory.

We’re about to start taking lessons on these poems, so if you need extra help then be sure to check out our AQA poetry and other English courses.
