This publication supports advanced level English Literature students in understanding what it means to analyse texts closely, providing:
'A superb new photocopiable resource for close reading … not just providing a set of classroom activities but also modelling for teachers a nuanced approach to drawing out student response whilst at the same time building the kind of complex literary knowledge and awareness that students should then be able to transfer to a range of texts.'
Gary Snapper, Nate

Andrea Varney, Esher College
'Brilliant! Creative and practical.'
Jemima Kettle, Guildford High School
