Power and Conflict Poetry

You will find links here to all the posts I have written about AQA’s GCSE English Literature Power and Conflict poetry from their ‘Past and Present’ Anthology. You will see that most have two parts. The first is often (but not always) dedicated to context, form and structure. The second is largely dedicated to language and imagery.
