William Blake: The Poems (Analysing Texts) by Nicholas Marsh

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic for A Level, 28 Jun 2011
I bought the book having been struggling with my A Level English Literature Blake module. The book was a great help and helped me score an A. The guide is very coherent, with analysis by theme of each poem. Key to A level literature, Marsh makes use of the stylistic and linguistic devices of Blake and reverts meaning to context. My teacher even sent a letter home to my parents after doing extremely well in a Blake presentation (with thanks to the author of course!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for children, 26 Feb 2008
Ok, so it may not be the best book for progressing childrens reading skills, but it is so fun!
When I was younger me and my friend used to sit through class in fits of laughter reading this book - "Do you put a rubber duck on your head?" "Do you put milk in your bath?" - hilarious!
The flip-style structure makes children make up their own weird combinations. Great illustrations, a simple and light read - a must for youngsters.

I found this book quite interesting, well written and laid out, but extremely irrelevant to the ENB2 Module. As I was re-sitting the module, I was hoping to find a significant study aid in order to gain a higher grade, but I was disappointed with this guide. The English guide does include a few good points on language and gender, but misses out a lot of important parts, which are needed in order to succeed a high grade in the module. I ended up getting past papers and specifications from the AQA website ([...]) and basically teaching myself on the topic, and luckily resulted with full marks in the module. Overall, I found the guide discussed irrelevant (in regard to English Language) points.
