I used this very book to revise my English Lit exam (Unit 2 Poetry Across Time) and it had everything I wanted to know for each poem. Moreover it showed me how to answer exam questions which was very beneficial as in the actual exam I got a result of an A*. This was all because of this book. Amazon reviews I bought this for my 13-year old daughter as she's started her GCSE English ... she absolutely loves it and says it's helped her immensely. Would thoroughly recommend it. Amazon reviews This is a very useful book for anyone studying AQA GCSE Literature. It is a good companion for the AQA Anthology and gives helpful insight into the poems with tips for exam success.
