"This is one of the best resources I have seen on First World War poetry. An extensive, highly impressive and meticulously-researched piece of work...[I particularly liked] the amount of insightful and detailed commentary notes with the poems."
Kerri Bridges, Head of English & A Level Teacher

"I liked this very much as it suits AS studies very well. There was a clear explanation of each poem...[and] the activities are effective preparation for the kind of comparative approach required in the final paper. Anything that supports and promotes independent thinking is essential for AS and A2 and this certainly does that."
Cathi Allison, English Teacher, Senior Examiner & Independent Reviewer
