"Excellent resource. It matches very well the AQA A Literature theme of 'The Struggle for Identity' as students can see how the texts were influenced & how they differ in form yet have similar themes. Excellent for background study for this unit."
S Fallon, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer

"I liked the resource as it was clearly organised & it closely followed the assessment criteria (AOs). I like the way it explicitly linked the criteria AOs to the essay & demonstrated how they might be met. I also liked the fact it was very clear for any teacher to follow easily & the link to A Level Language as many students take both subjects & it boosts responses. It enables students to learn how to focus their reading & writing skills. It also picks up on some useful context & theory."
