Book Description

The only textbook that has been written for the Oxford AQA International GCSE English Literature specification (9275), for first teaching in September 2016. Written by expert authors who have contributed to the new specification, the clear international approach develops students' reading, writing and critical thinking skills. Packed with examples of Prose, Poetry, Set and Unseen texts and exercises in the first half build strong foundations, developing the key
skills required to critically analyse, evaluate and respond to different types of literature. The second half ensures students are fully prepared for their exams with full support and guidance on each part of the assessment, giving students the opportunity to apply the skills they have learnt to specific
Set and Unseen texts. This textbook helps students to develop the key skills needed for their exams and provides an excellent grounding for further study at A Level.
