Description - The Language of Literature by Adrian Beard

Routledge A Level English Guides equip AS and A2 Level students with the skills they need to explore, evaluate, and enjoy English. Books in the series are built around the various skills specified in the assessment objectives (AOs) for all AS and A2 Level English courses. Focusing on the AOs most relevant to their topic, the books help students to develop their knowledge and abilities through analysis of lively texts and contemporary data. Each book in the series covers a different area of language and literary study, and offers accessible explanations, examples, exercises, summaries, a glossary of key terms, and suggested answers. The Language of Literature: *looks at how writers use language to create literary texts *explores a wide variety of literary texts from Shakespeare to Helen Fielding, via Alexander Pope, William Blake, Mary Shelley, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, Julian Barnes and Martin Amis *covers the key skills and topics, including structure, shapes and patterns, genre and sub-genre, narrative and narrators, representing talk, metaphor, allegory and intertextuality *offers a step-by-step guide to approaching literary texts and structuring a response *can be used as both a course stimulus and a revision tool. Written by an experienced teacher, author and AS and A2 Level examiner, The Language of Literature is an essential resource for all students of AS and A2 Level English Language, English Literature, and English Language and Literature.
