How do i approach poems?

For the best grades you must approach poems based on effect rather than technique. Firstly, just read the poem, do not analyse it, just take it in and see what thoughts it provokes in you. Then go through form and structure: meter, rhyme etc. What effect do these have? Finally look at lexical techniques and their effect. This approach means that you focus on effect rather than cause.
