    Help with poetry essays Shaunakk01

    is it always necessary to discuss 6 poems? if you referred to the 6 but only discussed 4 or 5 in detail can you still get full marks?

      We only study 4 poems by each poet in our school, our teacher says 4 is plenty! Depends on how much closer depth you go into for each poem I guess! Your poetry answers usually only 3-4 pages depending on your writing :)

      that's true, just depends on how much detail you give, there is no set number of poems you have to discuss. How many poets is everyone learning , would 3 and have a vague idea of a fourth cover you does anyone know?

      You should refer to four poems in detail in an answer, most schools study six poems to make sure that all the themes of the poet are covered.

      Yeah exactly! I think most people are learning 3-4 in great detail, the predictions are Ni Chuilleanain Frost or Montague, but I'd say to know the other poets relatively well too
