"Fabulous. Really comprehensive and easy to follow for students, with some in-depth and quite unusual wider reading options.
[I particularly liked] the wide range of war poetry and the categorisation of the poems for easy thematic teaching.
I was really impressed with it.

L Jenkins, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

"I’m very impressed by the extraordinary amount of work that went into the resource. Staggering! Overall I thought the resource was excellent. The quality of the commentaries on the poetry was high, with good intertextual links and insightful, sometimes subtle, analysis of a wide range of poetic devices. The worksheets were well-focused and the exam style questions apposite."
N Bowen, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

"I think this is a very good resource with some excellent gives both students and teachers helpful information in one place. The web links and bibliography are excellent as are the worksheets and questions."
S Jones, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

"This resource is bound to be gratefully received by students and teachers alike. This resource is in depth, comprehensive and of very high quality. Clear and informative notes on the poems and great links to further information. A further strength is the fact that tasks are placed directly after each small group of poems. This approach encourages and guides close, comparative analysis."
