H Griffiths, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

“The mix of analytical detail with the opportunities for students to extend this skill in the range of activities provided is admirable. It not only allows students to consider the text independently on many levels: structure, form, characterisation, etc. but also allows students to consider the text in a 'loose' canonical sense, e.g. how its narrative structure and technique connects with Woolf and Scott Fitzgerald."
