GCSE & Y10-11 equivalent resources

As it says in the introduction (in case you missed it) there are plenty of other sites which will ‘explain’ poems, spot ‘poetic features’ or offer comprehension questions. The key to both understanding and enjoyment, in my view, is involvement: you need to do something. Having said that, some resources I’ve included are simply aids to further thought or research, such as the letter from Cecil Day-Lewis’s son or the links for ‘Romney Marsh’.
