The CGP AQA Anthology The Study Guide: Poems are books aimed at Higher Level GCSE English Literature students studying the poems for the AQA exam.
I recommend them strongly. These books have all the poems that may come up in the exam. Each poem is broken down into sections; so what happens, the types of language used and the feelings, attitudes and themes explored. The poems are also annotated with extensive, detailed notes and there is a poem dictionary which explains any poetical terms and / or archaic language. It's great to use when doing practice essays and even has some sample essays at the back; these tell you how to plan / compose an essay and how to get the best marks.
Finally they're very reasonably priced (usually about £6).
