English Literature A Level Coursework and Revision Tutorials
We are just starting out on our journey to produce great resources for English Literature A level. At the moment we have covered the genres, The Gothic and Tragedy.
In the meantime please do get in touch if there is anything in particular you would like us to tackle!
This series introduces the students to the gothic as broad traditions/genres for those taking A Level English Literature. Specific texts will be mentioned and examined, but not in the detail of text-/author-centred series; the primary aim is to consider how various example texts might fit (or perhaps not fit) received wisdom concerning what gothic “is.”.
Tragedies are stories of misery, madness and murder. So why read (and watch) tragedy? It is one of literature’s most popular and enduring genres, but what possible enjoyment can an audience get from watching characters in the depths of despair? What does tragedy tell us about human existence? What does tragedy actually mean? In this series, we will examine all the different aspects of Tragedy and how you can apply it to your English Literature A Level. Written by Alan Scott, who is a senior examiner, it will provide you with the debate, analysis and examples of great tragedy.
