Never used to like modern poetry until I had to become familiar with the poems of Simon Armitage when tutoring students studying for GCSE. I recommend anyone not sure about modern poetry to read with care and thought Simon's poems.

Really useful for anyone teaching or studying the OCR GCSE specification as it covers all 15 poems. Great value for money & really helpful.

basically a series of comprehensions to provoke thought - good questions, but not analytical - if that's what you're looking for!
