Important note!! As my tech skills are completely inadequate and therefore incapable of making a blog like a normal person, to find my analysis of Rossetti’s poems, click the above link ‘The Poems’ and select the poem you want to take a look at. Links to an individual analysis will be attached to each poems title as I write my notes up- which I will do as quickly as I can!

But any-who, hello there! My name is Kate and I’m here to make studying the works of Christina Rossetti a bit easier for you! I was among the first few students to sit the new Edexcel A Level English Literature Course (first As exam in 2016), and am now waiting for my A level results. This blog is intended for people studying for the same thing, but I will be so pleased if anyone else finds my babbling useful.

I guess I am sharing my revision notes with you as I found it difficult to find, well anything at all on most of Rossetti’s poems. I will do my best to write in a way that does not send you to sleep, and will endeavour to make this whole process of studying and preparing for the 2 and 1/4 hour poetry exam as interesting as humanly possible, and maybe (just maybe) a little bit enjoyable.

My other texts were:

Poems of the decade

The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald (for coursework)

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier ( ” )

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (for the prose exam)

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini ( ” )

Othello by William Shakespeare (for the drama exam)

The Importance Of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde ( ” )

So just let me know if you are interested in any of my notes for them, but for now I will just stick to Rossetti. Okay here we go, 21 poems to go…

Happy revising!

Kate xxx
