Secondary English - Poetry Overview

Discussion in 'English' started by Ents8, Mar 7, 2011.

  1. Hiya,
    I am currently preparing for a Media and English GTP interview with Kent. I already know from a PGCE interview that I need to brush up on my poetry knowledge as it is by far my weakest area, and i wondered if it would be possible for someone to suggest a few selections i should look at?
    I have read KS3 texts like 'Skellig', 'Boy in the striped pyjamas' and 'Chains' but i'm finding it harder to know where to start with poetry.
    Any help or guidance would be most appreciated.
    Thanks in advance :)
  2. Hi
    Modern poets - carole ann duffy, simon armitage, philip larkin, sylvia plath, seamus heaney
    War poets - wilfred owen, sigfried sassoon, rupert brooke
    Pre 1900 poets - christina rosetti, robert browning, john donne
    Culture poets - grace nicholls, imitiaz dharker, moniza alvi, james berry

    There's loads really, but these are the most popular choices used in schools.

    Good luck
  3. Thank you so much. I best get reading!
