“A thorough and engaging resource. Wish I’d seen this before I started teaching the text this year! Each chapter is summarised, then the key themes/characters are discussed… Followed by a series of discussion points and sometimes a writing task, allowing pupils to engage more personally with the text. The genre convention section is also very useful, as is the section on form/structure and the section on Literary Approaches.” – S Owen, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
