  • 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.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2995)
'An excellent comprehensive guide perfectly matched to the spec - a gift for teachers! It meets the requirements of the Assessment Objectives in an 'easy to understand' way enabling success in the exam. Thank you for making my life easier!' C Hornby, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
Overall I think this is a really valuable resource. It is clearly directed at the aims of the specification and the assessment objectives, which require an understanding of the aspects of narrative, but it also offers relevant background contextual material, which serves to reinforce the importance of the aspects of narrative in terms of what Coleridge was trying to achieve.
