Description

2. Course description Building on what you've already learnt at GCSE, this A-Level in English Literature will further your love of reading and passion for literature of all genres, as you develop the core skills and critical awareness needed to understand a wide range of influential texts. You'll explore Christina Rossetti's Selected Poetry alongside a deep look at the dramatic themes in William Shakespeare's The Tempest. Other drama pieces you'll examine include A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams and An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde. You'll get to focus on an incredible piece of prose in each year of study, with George Orwell's 1984 on the table for year one, and Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale the open book for year two. With each genre and piece of text, you'll learn the importance of culture and context in literature, and see how these can influence both authors and readers. You'll be developing a range of key skills that will help you succeed in a number of careers, and you'll even get to complete your own personal research piece on a topic that you find interesting.
