    Anyone know how is the best way to answer a poetry question?

      Discuss 4 poems per poet in detail being able to quote from each and be able to manipulate all poem choices depending on the Q. Be strategic in the poems and poets you pick. Study 3 poets for mocks and 4/5 for the actual exam

      I always discuss 3 poems in great detail, 2 in lesser detail and then make slight reference to another one or two. Seems to work out well for me anyway.
