English Literature at King James's School

Course description

This course is designed to appeal to students who enjoy exploring the ways in which feelings, meanings and ideas are expressed in texts. Throughout the course, you will read a wide range of poetry, prose and drama from modern and historical periods and selected from a diversity of cultural fields. The course will allow you to examine the contexts in which texts are produced and will enable you to recognise the functions of literature - its social, political and philosophical concerns. You will develop skills of close, critical analysis and will be increasingly able to make meaningful links between texts.

Entry requirements
