    • Thread Starter

    I'm studying 'Absurd Person Singular', 'A Passage To India' the poems of Wilfred Owen and an undisclosed Shakespeare play. How does that compare to everyone else?

    For AS I studied:
    ~The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad
    ~Jane Eyre
    ~Meantime by Duffy

    Compare TSA with any post 2000 novel (The Road).

    ~King Lear
    ~Whitsun Weddings

    For AS I did Antony and Cleopatra, Streetcar, The Glass Menagerie and Gatsby. For A2 I think I'm doing King Lear, The Scarlet Letter, the Catcher in the Rye and The Butcher Boy.

    For AS I studied Whitsun Weddings, Meantime by Duffy, also The Mayor of Casterbridge and Streetcar.

    As for A2 I only know we're studying King Lear so far.

    For AStreetcar, The Great Gatsby, Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald and W.B.Yeats poetry. And for A2: The Tempest, Volpone, Dubliners,To The Lighthouse and T.S.Eliot poetry.

    So glad I'm done with English Lit A Level!

    Streetcar gang.

    Aside from that, I'm studying Hard Times and Atonement.

    In A2, add Any Human Heart and Brideshead Revisited to that list.
