Welcome! These pages provide detailed readings of the poems selected by the WJEC for the GCSE in English Literature (component 3B) on Welsh Writing in English (up to the year 2023). You will find detailed discussions of each of the set poems, along with some pictures and links in the helpsheets which are provided as PDFs.
These readings are aimed at teachers doing the background reading in preparation for teaching, but can be viewed and used by anyone. Students are reminded that they are assessed on their own readings.
NB: These resources are not endorsed by the WJEC and are not intended to replace any of the teaching resources created by the WJEC.
These pages were commissioned and edited by CREW, the Centre for Research into the English Literature and Language of Wales.
Editors: Kirsti Bohata with Rhea Seren Phillips (2023) and Siriol McAvoy (2020-2022)
