4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 26 Mar 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very useful tool. Whilst not providing analysis as such it outlines each poem and puts it into context. Very cheap and cheerful :).

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of useful stuff for exam revision! 27 May 2010
By Scampo TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
York Notes are moving in the right direction from the old days for sure. This is well written clear and comprehensive. The author has worked really hard and is clearly very knowledgeable. Well worth the small cost if you are doing AQA, OCR etc - or if you are interested in World War I Poetry.
