Aspects of Narrative ~ Year 12 Summer Reading by 32Gp64yR


									                         Literature post-1900 ~ Year 12 Summer Reading

In the English Department we teach a wide range of texts at AS level. Over the summer
holiday we would like you to read at least one novel and a selection of poetry from those listed

We would like you to return in September with thoughts on the following questions:
        who is telling the story?
        what places are important?
        how are characters created?
        does time always follow a linear direction?
        how do writers open and close their texts?
        At the end of the day, what messages do you think the writers wanted to leave you with?

                                     That should get you thinking!
