Well, I'm from America and have never had A4's, but I would expect that if they want to test your Knowledge on Keats, they'd at least hit on some basics. For example, they might ask you how Keats employs his ideas of "light and shade" in his poems--you can find examples of *that* in nearly all his great poems. They may also ask about negative capability (the ability to live in doubts and uncertainties without reaching after facts). Those are just some general, basic thoughts. I had a friend in college whose final oral report for graduation was to discuss Keats's use of personification in "To Autumn". They probably won't ask you about Keats's political leanings (how they appear in his poetry or what they were in contrast to other poets or his generation as a whole)--but who knows? They may ask you to explore Keats's concept of Beauty and what it means to him. Or how Keats is a representative of Romantic thinking (maybe compared or contrasted to his contemporaries). These are some basic things that they might ask about. Hope it helps :)

Yes...but the tip requires reading and familiarizing yourself with a secondary, critic's work: Stuart Sperry. The book is called "Keats the Poet." It concentrates on some his chief works (odes included) and emphasizes the unique development of his poetic process. :wink:
