This resource contains 14 10-mark Unseen Poetry tests for students in years 9 to 12. I used them in tests together with my prescribed poems for study or as part of a literature test. Check out the preview for a sense of the variety of poems and themes available. They are taxonomically balanced 40% literal, 40% inferential and 20% evaluation and are designed to promote a range of interpretive language skills as well as the ability to write analytically and discursively. Students should demonstrate a good understanding of imagery, powerful rhetorical devices and poetic structure. I chose the poems for their emotional effects, engaging themes and thought-provoking messages. They originate from America, the UK and Africa. Drop them into a literature test or exercise or use them in a poetry study circle.
