    studied poetry? aine15

    I haven't done much studied poetry, only briefly and the mocks are in 4 weeks! can someone please suggest some poetry I could search myself and study. I was thinking about midterm break by Seamus Heaney but I'm pretty sure he'll come up in the unseen poetry. I have 1 poem but I've heard it's best to have at least 3. please help!

      Shakespearean sonnets are always good, my class studied sonnet 29 and sonnet 60 :)

      Shakespeare Sonnet 18 - Shall I Compare Thee. It's a great love poem.

      Make sure to do poems by different poets though just in case you have to compare two similar poems or whatever as I think that question may have come up before.
