4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it was, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
About what you would expect from a York Notes Advanced. I would have liked questions on each chapter to help with revision and perhaps more AS/A2/IPQ?Extended Essay exam or coursework questions than what was on offer. Nevertheless, not bad for what it was.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing and an addition to my Sincalir collection, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dining on Stones (Paperback)
I am a huge fan of psychogeography and London-based novels and poems, so it was good to read this and it worked well as a book to read alongside Lud Heat and Peter Ackroyd's "Hawksmoor". Not perhaps his best but by no means unworthy.


John Keats: The Poems (Analysing Texts)
John Keats: The Poems (Analysing Texts)
by John Blades
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but could be a bit better, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had hoped for a bit more here and a bit more analysis of lexis, rhyme, rhythm, form etc that would have been more helpful for AS and A2 English Lit students rather than a "what the poem means" type thing, which is what I got.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as you get them in Italy, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They arrived EXTREMELY securely packaged so noto ne glass was in any way damaged - Well done! The glasses look really great and are just like the ones I got served 'Peroni grande' in whilst in Italy - just what I wanted.

This had lots of good things in small bite-sized chunks that were easy to access and read, providing a student with a simple but effective way of accessing critical views and other important information.


AS/A-Level Student Text Guide: The Poetry of John Keats
AS/A-Level Student Text Guide: The Poetry of John Keats
by Marian Cox
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Book's fine but shame about poor packaging, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is really good - if slightly simplistic in places and I bought it to replace one that a past pupil had walked off with and never returned. Sadly, it was sent in such flimsy packaging that the front cover was all creased and bent and the pages inside folded over. I was pretty annoyed about this, especially since I had to pay a premium price that was more than the original book I purchased.

I found the notes quite detailed and helpful and I liked the questions asked so that you cuold revise what you had just read in the novel. Worth the money.


Selected Poems of John Keats (Master Guides)
Selected Poems of John Keats (Master Guides)
by John Garrett
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but not enough of the right detail, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought that this was a litle out of kilter with the AS/A2 examination requirements as they exist today but it did have plenty about a fair number of poems, but not much about the language,structure and form. Quite good to remind yuo about what goes on, especially in the longer narrative poems but do not expect a revelation.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These arrived securely packed but all woven together so it was hard to disentangle them. Sadly, several of them fell apart within 7 days or the grips kept sliding up and down the rod, thereby making the clothes crease. Disappointing.

These were very well priced and have worked well on even the heaviest of coats. All arrived securely packed and were a great price too. Fantastic!
