The Road: A Text Companion

A complete study companion for those studying or teaching the dystopian novel The Road by Cormac McCarthy at A Level.

  • A comprehensive collection of commentaries which explore every aspects of the novel’s context, plot, characters, narrative, themes, motifs and ideas, language and key quotations.
  • The novel’s exploration has also been divided into 16 sections with commentary on the key aspect of that section to make the analysis of this novel easier to digest.
  • Thought-provoking questions and activities have been interspersed throughout to encourage further exploration and individual interpretation, particularly on how McCarthy constructed his narrative.

Also includes AQA B Lit practice exam questions for Section A of the exam.

Very excited about such a thorough resource for a modern text – will save precious time for a teacher new to the text.
