Designed specifically for AQA A Level English Literature, Modern times: Literature from 1945 to the present day, this resource offers four short extracts from unseen modern texts followed by tasks based on critical views of Walker’s The Color Purple and Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire . Four practice questions included. Could be used as a discussion PowerPoint or as a group activity, using the slides as worksheets.

Comparing 'Rebecca' with the AQA Poetry Anthology

(0)
A worksheet style resource, which includes a table with detailed comparative analysis of Du Maurier’s ‘Rebecca’ with Blake’s ‘The Garden of Love’ and Keats’s ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’. The table is followed up with a task which prompts students to do the same thing with the remaining poems. (I’ve not included the two Hardy poems as I don’t think they’re great together, but you could differentiate by getting weaker students to just compare with one Hardy poem at a time in a similar fashion. Or, could be a homework/follow up task). The main detail is on Blake, Keats and the novel. References to AOs are specifically tailored to AQA A-level ENGLISH LITERATURE A (7712/1) Paper 1: Love through the Ages
