    Mock tomorrow morning I've done a fair bit of study so I'm not too panicked but I don't know how many poems I need per poet for my essays.
    I was thinking 3 with 3 (minimum) quotes I can apply to possible questions.
    Do I need more? Or am I good going with that?

    We were told 4/5 per poet.

    Yeah I would definitely do more than 3, the ideal I've heard from everyone is approximately 5 give or take one per essay with one paragraph dedicated to each poem, obviously too late now for the mocks but you should definitely do a few more for the real thing - I would say to cover 6 per poet just so you have an extra one in case one of them doesn't seem relevant to the question

    I did 4, that was just short notice (read didn't study) thanks, I think I'll start around Easter to make up for lost time
