A Level English Literature


A Level English Literature covers a range of set texts from different genres and time periods. You will study texts varying from Shakespeare’s Othello to Margaret Atwood’;s The Handmaid’;s Tale. You are required to read texts in a variety of ways and respond critically and creatively, explore connections between texts, establishing links and relationships, use literary terminology and draw on your understanding of different interpretations. Aspects of journalism, writing, rhetorical questions, communication and more specific concept ideas will also be studied.
