Review quote

Excellent, in-depth and useful structured analysis of poems. A 'serious' book...[with] well-structured commentaries to really 'get you thinking'. I found the glossary, sample answers, and in particular the section on AOs, clear and helpful. I'd recommend this book to any GCSE English Lit student seeking guidance. -- Amazon reviewer * Victoria Daniels * The new Study and Revise guides are wonderful. Students who used them were able to provide a focused and personal response in their exam questions. Those who used guides from other series covered the points required but responses were more generic: they didn't show the deeper and more thoughtful understanding that students gained from using Study and Revise. -- English Teacher, Hasmonean High School, London * Victoria Daniels *
