Literature Paper 1 will test your knowledge and understanding of the poetry from the Eduqas Anthology. You will not be allowed to take the text into the exam so you will need to study the poems in depth and memorise key quotations so that you can write about the poems with confidence.
1 poem will be printed on the exam paper and you will be expected to analyse the poem in detail and then compare it to another poem from the anthology that will not be printed on the paper.
The 18 poems which must be studied are:
The Manhunt - Simon Armitage
Sonnet 43 - Elizabeth Barrett Browning
London - William Blake
The Soldier - Rupert Brooke
She Walks in Beauty - Lord Byron
Living Space - Imtiaz Dharker
As Imperceptibly as Grief - Emily Robinson
Cozy Apologia - Rita Dove
Valentine - Carol Ann Duffy
A Wife in London - Thomas Hardy
Death of a Naturalist - Seamus Heaney
Hawk Roosting - Ted Hughes
To Autumn - John Keats
Afternoons - Philip Larkin
Dulce et Decorum est - Wilfred Owen
Ozymandias - Percy Bysshe Shelley
Mametz Wood - Owen Sheers
excerpt from The Prelude - William Wordsworth
