I didn't use any poems in the exam due to lack of a good question and lack of knowledge of the poems we studied since I hadn't really seriously looked at them for about 3 months blink.gif

Anyway, the ones I did in class included:

Afternoons by Philip Larkin

At Grass by Philip Larkin (again... his poetry is so depressing -.-)

The TV by Norman McCaig

Autumn by John Keats (i completely blanked out on this one tongue.gif )

My Last Word on Frogs by Norman McCaig

Can I just say, I once read the Prime of Miss Jean Brodie when researching for my personal study (I ended up doing The Life and Loves of a She-devil by Faye Weldon). Muriel Spark really got it right with that book and anyone who hasn't read it should.

I've done Sonnet 65, might be doing sonnet 64 as well not sure. Prose is Pornographer Woos, we've started Games at Twilight but not finished, and will be doing another short story. Not sure there will be much time though.
