Part 1 introduces students to the basics of poetry, prose and drama through a wide variety of international texts. In Part 2, students hone their skills by analysing sample student responses to essay questions, passage analysis tasks and unseen texts. The final part encourages independent learning with advice about essay technique and avoiding common errors. This second edition includes more opportunities for self-assessment and reflection.
