The goal of this book is to make preparation for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) English Literature exam simple, methodical and fun.
Literary Analysis brings up an image of abstruse complexity, and many of the textbooks on the topic of literary analysis are inaccessible to the ninth-grader starting his or her IGCSE English Literature course. Yet this skill is necessary for getting top grades in the final examination. This book introduces a fun way to learn the basic techniques of literary analysis with several examples to guide you along the way.
This book also helps you with the logistics of the exam – how to manage time, how to prepare for the three genres (poems, drama and prose), how to write essays within the allotted time, how to use checklists before exam day, etc. A companion website with free downloadable worksheets makes it easy to manage all these tasks. In addition, a companion blog allows you to connect with and learn from other readers who are also beginning their journey into the exciting realm of IGCSE English Literature.
