FOR THOSE WISHING TO STUDY ENGLISH LITERATURE AT ‘A’ LEVEL
We welcome any student on the English Literature ‘A’ level course who is prepared to work hard and who gains a B grade or above in both English and English literature IGCSEs. Those of you for whom English is a second language should generally be cautious about choosing English literature ‘A’ level as it requires the ability to read some very demanding texts.
Below are a list of books that it would be very useful for you to read in addition to Tess of the D’Urbervilles and A Thousand Splendid Suns.
Congratulations on choosing to study English Literature ‘A’ Level. You will find it a challenging by enjoyable course which teaches many of the critical thinking skills necessary for university education.
We follow the Edexcel syllabus which comprises four modules and requires you to study eight texts in total.
The purpose of this letter is to outline the course details and to set you some pre-course reading tasks. In addition, we are also providing a list of desired reading. ‘A’ level examiners will expect to see references to books, including critical and biographical works, other than those that are set. The more you read, the more insightful and perceptive you will become. It will develop your appreciation of the literary canon and allow you to make some discerning connections yourself.
