AS-Level Poetry

This is an under development portal page. In time it will link to each of the different sections of analysis in a wonderfully intuitive and visually spectacular way.

For now it basically does nothing more than looks a bit ugly.

Examined 2015-16 – Songs of Ourselves – Volume 1, Part 1 (Poems from the 16th and Early 17th Centuries)

Examined 2017-18 – Songs of Ourselves – Volume 2

The link below is a download of an Example Responses Booklet from 2011 – gives a good idea of grading, but the texts are not the ones you’re using. (I’d downloaded this from Xtreme Papers, but when I checked recently I couldn’t find it on their site).

  1. Hello sir,
    I am grateful for your effort and help to us through this website.
    I am kindly requesting you to provide possible exam questions for the poems,

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Hope,

      It’s an idea that has been put to me before. I will consider going back and doing it when I have finished the collection.


      Mr Sir

  2. Hi Mr. Sir!

    Thanks so much for all of your helpful references on this website! I’m sure I’d have flopped my IGCSEs if it weren’t for you.
    I know you’re quite busy but if you could analyse ‘Song’ by Ted Hughes for AS Level Literature, that would be amazing!

    Thanks once again,


    1. Hi Tanya,

      Great to hear the site has helped you out. However, Ted Hughes is not on my agenda, so I’m not going to be able to help you out there 🙁


      Mr Sir
