Pat Barker’s gritty historical novel offers a modern perspective on WW1, exploring the conflict through the lens of psychology and mental illness, as well as examining complex themes such as gender and sexuality.

Ready-to-use, detailed study notes with fantastically clear and comprehensive analysis examine the presentation of real and fictional characters and guide students through Barker’s sparse language, giving students a deep insight into the text.

What do teachers say about this resource? (6719)

An excellent comprehensive resource. It was well presented and included some interesting ideas which would provide useful teaching resources. It also successfully addressed the AOs of the new A level specification very well, particularly in terms of Context (AO3) and Literary Response (AO5)." - C Webb, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

A thorough and engaging resource. Wish I’d seen this before I started teaching the text this year! Each chapter is summarised, then the key themes/characters are discussed... Followed by a series of discussion points and sometimes a writing task, allowing pupils to engage more personally with the text. The genre convention section is also very useful, as is the section on form/structure and the section on Literary Approaches." S Owen, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
