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.

Christina Rossetti Poetry Guide for A Level

A comprehensive collection of commentaries and analysis on 15 Christina Rossetti poems, with an overview of the poems, suggestions for further reading and a brief biography. The guide could easily be used by teachers as the basis for a programme of study with a teaching group or more independently by students as part of self-supported study.

Each poem commentary includes analysis of:
  1. the structural and form features
  2. the language and messages in each stanza
  3. the context of the poem in relation to other work by Rossetti

Talking points are interspersed throughout to prompt further reflection and discussion of each poem and of Rossetti’s poetry in general.

Essential that students understand the Language/Form/Structure and this resource explained them all well.
