A Level English Literature, from its study of Shakespeare plays to the modern novel, explores all aspects of the human condition. The historical context in which the texts are set often influence the characters' responses to love, politics, nature and the world in general. Did you know that English Literature explores, from its earliest form, the psychology of the mind and provides an insight into the societies from the time they were written?
It is an exciting subject that encourages you to explore stories and narratives from different eras. It is a well-respected subject and welcomed by all universities and employers in all career paths.
