Paradise Lost Books IX and X Comprehensive Guide for A Level OCR

Set text for:
  • OCR A Level

Milton’s story takes a tragic turn as the feud between heaven and hell rages. Envious, hateful and revengeful, Satan enacts his plan to bring Eve, and the entire human race, to ruin. Guide your students through the exciting final two books of Milton’s epic poem with detailed analysis, thought-provoking discussion points and essential essay questions.

I would recommend this resource to teachers and students. I particularly liked the clear, straightforward presentation of historical and social context. E Hewitt, Head of English & Peer Reviewer (legacy edition)
Engage your students! Throughout:
  • Discussion points
  • Text transformation exercises
  • Essay practice questions

The pack tackles the key stages of text analysis:

  1. Walk-through Thorough commentary walks students through the text section by section
  2. Drawing it all together In-depth discussion of whole text focuses on: characterisation, relationships, genre, themes, language, form, structure, context, literary approaches
  3. Indicative content Supports teaching by ensuring all key areas are covered

Plus! Glossary of key terms ensures full understanding

What do teachers say about this resource? (10589)

This is an excellent resource.

Well thought out.

Clear detailed section explanations.

Neat selection of critics which could be expanded by student through individual research.

Also, the activities are both useful to test/improve understanding as well as essay preparation tools. They enable group and independent work as well as discussion and presentation opportunities. Concise answer sections.

Context section is very good - students have very little knowledge of this period of history.

I like the little summary boxes at the start of each section and activities at the end.

The academic level is just right to cover the demands of the OCR specification but also to stretch more capable students.
