    Ah yes, next years literature is great!

    I'm doing Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra and Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales

    My teacher gave us a reading list and there are about 30 books :eek: She told us to read most of them during the summer break
    Awww i'm very jealous of your Shakespeare set text! :P
    I have a 1932 edition of The Canterbury Tales, that was my mums hahaha!
    I'll be needing to research all these unfamiliar words that are used because I'm just not used to the old language at all! I guess that's something we'll be doing in class.

    Just to ask, what kind of books are on your reading list, we haven't been given one this year :/

    Ahaa, she said that it might change though so...but I hope that it stays the same!
    That's great I actually went on YouTube today to see what Old English was like, so I listened to the Prologue of the tales; and I must say that I didn't understand a word! I'm aware that there is a translated version so I'll be looking into that

    I'll upload the reading list here actually, for everyone to see. It's separated into three sections: prose, poetry and drama

    you guys are lucky that you got duffy. Q_Q
    sheers is harder to talk about, there isn't much in his poem that is such a strong point that you can always bring up, plus his use of enjambment while prevalent is not really any symbolical.
    also how did you guys try to link the extract to struggle for identity?
