Tbh, I got an A* on Edexcel English Lit A-level without doing any further reading. I would recommend just reading and rereading the texts you're studying again and again until you know them inside out and back to front.

As said above, make sure you know the texts inside out.

Read as much as you can about the authors. Read as much as you can about the time period in which they were produced. Read literary theory. Make sure you understand literary devices.

Now is a really good time to look online for academic articles and literary theory explaining fun aspects of these texts, as they're being made available for students. Literally just google it and see what you can find!

In terms of reading contemporary or relevant texts for comparison, I'd recommend:

- reading another Shakespearean tragicomedy (and make sure you understand his comedy-tragedy divisions!)
- Frankenstein: read Coleridge, Wordsworth, Shelley for Romanticism
- The Handmaid's Tale: literally anything feminist. A Room of One's Own maybe? There's literally so much out there.
- Earnest: read other plays of the fin du siècle period! and other Wilde of course.
- T.S. Eliot - Woolf, Fitzgerald and other modernist writers
- Wuthering Heights: read Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters. or maybe just the wikipedia and cliffnotes summaries
- The Bloody Chamber: read Grimms' Fairy Stories and more feminist literature

If you have any questions lmk
