AS English literature Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've decided with my teacher to study AS English literature off timetable and take the AS exam in 2019 (study over the two years) but I've now been given the option of which pros to do.
    I was just wondering if anyone had had any experience with studying any of these texts on the AQA spec and which ones they preferred.

    Persuasion- Jane Austen
    Jane Eyre- Charlotte Brontë
    Wuthering Heights- Emily Brontë
    The Awakening- Kate Chopin
    The Rotters’ Club- Jonathan Coe
    The Mill on the Floss- George Eliot
    Tess of the D’Urbervilles- Thomas Hardy
    The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald
    A Room with a View- E.M. Forster
    The Go-Between - L.P. Hartley
    Rebecca- Daphne du Maurier
    Atonement- Ian McEwan

    I'm pretty sure I would like to do 'The great Gatsby' but any advice on a second choice would be welcome!
