English Literature A Level at Anthony Gell School

Course description

This course centres on different ways of reading texts and making connections between them. It looks at specific genres such as tragedy and crime. Students are encouraged to develop their own interpretations and become confident, independent readers. At AS you will explore ‘aspects of tragedy’ and study a Shakespeare play, a modern drama text, poetry and a novel. You will consider these texts in their contexts. At A - level, you will extend this and explore ‘elements of crime writing.’ Again you will study a range of texts linked to the genre. There is also a coursework element to encourage independent study.
