Tackles the key stages of text analysis:

  1. Walk-through
    Thorough section-by-section commentary walks students through each chapter
  2. Drawing it all together
    In-depth discussion of whole text focuses on areas such as: characterisation, relationships, genre, themes, attitudes and values, language, form, structure, context, literary approaches
  3. Put into practice
    Sample assessment materials replicate the structure of the oral commentary so students know exactly what to expect. Guiding and probing questions cater for all abilities. Plus! Discussion questions for HL students.
A thorough guide which contextualises the novel and shows real insight into each chapter. I particularly liked the social context, themes and symbols. I thought the tone of the chapter analysis was excellent as the student will feel that they are getting an in-depth idea of why characters behave in certain ways with examples from the novel. A superb resource. S Fallon, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer (of A Level adaptation)
