    AQA - you have to write about one poem you are given and compare/contrast with a second of your choice, linked by theme.
    Cluster 2 is easy.
    Unless it's 'Love After Love' which doesn't seem to 'go' with anything at all.
    'This Room' came up in November, so unlikely to be tomorrow's named poem.

    So if she ignored the ones above and looked at the others - Limbo, Island Man etc she should be ok?

    That's cluster 1, not 2.

    There are two questions. Candidates answer one. Question 1 will name a poem from Cluster 1 and question 2 names a Cluster 2 poem.

    So they need to know at lest one cluster (eight poems) and have ideas of how each poem links with others. They must write about the named poem and one other and that can be from either cluster. Candidates can get away with knowing only one cluster; studying poems from both gives them. Choice of questions.
