  • Detailed commentaries, thoughtfully structured into Character and Situation; Feelings; Structure; Imagery and Language

Usefully includes:

  • A PowerPoint for every poem with line-by-line annotation for easy teaching
  • How to Annotate a Poem worksheet to equip students with the skills they need
