Cambridge School Chaucer
Cambridge School Chaucer is an excellent way of introducing your students to an important period of pre-20th century literature and encouraging enjoyment and understanding of Chaucer among a wide age range. The original Middle English text appears on right-hand pages, faced by left-hand pages containing: a glossary of the more unfamiliar words and phrases; notes on style, characterisation and other relevant details; suggestions for activities; and a variety of illustrations. In addition each book also contains: background information on The Canterbury Tales; a brief explanation of the main lexical problems Chaucer presents; the relevant passage from The General Prologue; suggestions for essay and context questions; and a section on Further Reading.
From discussing poetic interpretations to the analysis of thematic structure, our English literature resources include considered approaches to classic texts, developing skills at the Cambridge IGCSE®, O Level, A Level and IB Diploma stages of learning.
Contemplate the messages of love, family and society within poetry from around the world, expose unseen comparisons in Chaucer’s works, apply critical thinking to the language of drama, and identify parallelism and enjambement in D. H Lawrence’s Mountain Lion. Our English literature resources encourage students to develop deeper understandings of different periods in English literature, and make informed decisions regarding context, semantics and writerly choices.
