AS/A Level English Literature

The study of English literature exercises the imagination, the emotions and the intellect. It is about life and living and your relationship not only with yourself but with the world around you.

This course offers you the chance to study a rich variety of literature from many different periods and lands. Amongst the texts we may study are Shakespeare’s Othello and the American classic A Streetcar Named Desire, a variety of love poetry across the ages, a Victorian novel like Tess of the D’Urbervilles and some great American novels like The Great Gatsby and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. you will also study post twentieth century literature like the poetry of contemporary Welsh poet Owen Sheers. All of these texts are stimulating and interesting and there are several opportunities for you to develop and research your own interests and to bring your own creative and independent skills to the tasks.

If you love reading and love the written word then this is the course for you. It will help you to have an open mind, an enquiring brain and to develop a precise writing style, a sensitivity to nuance and hidden meaning and a good level of general knowledge.

Each level lasts a year, so you'll spend a year at AS Level and a year at A Level.
