Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

A Level Merchant's Prologue and Tale

This study guide for “The Merchant’s Tale” is specifically geared to the Edexcel Advanced GCE in English Literature.

Each unit contains the text in original Middle English as well as a Modern English “translation” and, at appropriate stages, assignments for students to pursue. In addition, there are detailed notes for each section, in part, but not exclusively, slanted towards the assignments. A teacher can choose to use these notes to support teaching, or can issue the notes to the students for personal study or revision.

As most examinations would expect an understanding of the context of “The Merchant’s Tale”, included is a set of introductory summaries including the context of the tale itself as well as the context of medieval society.

There are also three articles covering the most frequently asked questions on “The Merchant’s Tale”: May, Irony in the Tale and Marriage.

Key features:

  • Useful for coursework or revision
  • Divided into 19 study units
  • Final section specific to Edexcel A2 Examination
