English Literature A Level at Northolt High School

Course description

This course involves the study of a range of texts spanning the last four centuries and a range of genres. You will learn how to critically analyse poetry, plays and novels from a range of writers such as Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Alice Walker to name but a few. Your developing understanding of historically significant moments and the texts that were produced out of them will enable you to look at your own world through a much more critical and informed lense. Your skills of inference, analysis and evaluation will be developed to allow you to make a range of interpretations of these texts and others.
