Focusing on texts written in English and emphasising writing by women from the beginning of the Renaissance period in the 1300s to the 21st century, this book illustrates not only the richness and diversity of female literary voices, but also the many changing and different contexts in which writing by women can be read.
Each title includes a wide-ranging yet carefully levelled introductory discussion of a literary period, genre or theme, to provide students with an excellent introduction to an area of literature.
Helps students to address the new assessment objective 4 ('demonstrate understanding of the significance and influence of the contexts in which literary texts are written and received') - worth up to 35% of the A level qualification under new guidelines.
Discussion questions and end-of-section tasks offer an invaluable resource for self study as well as helpful exam preparation.
A mini-anthology of texts and extracts saves teachers time searching for appropriate 'wider reading' texts.
