Routledge A Level English Guides equip AS and A2 Level students with the skills they need to explore, evaluate and enjoy English. Books in the series are built around the various skills specified in the assessment objectives (AOs) for all AS and A2 Level English courses.Focusing on the AOs most relevant to their topic, the books help students to develop their knowledge and abilities through analysis of lively texts and contemporary data. Each book in the series covers a different area of language and literary study, and offers accessible explanations, examples, exercises, summaries, a glossary of key terms and suggested answers. Texts Through History *provides students with the skills they need to analyse the historical context of a text, without relying on extra research *introduces the reader to some of the key schools of criticism, such as Feminism, Marxism and Post-Colonialism *explores attitudes over time to regional identity, race and mythology *traces the development of genre over time, examining the way different historical contexts can affect and change the form of a text *includes a wide range of illustrative texts, from interviews and poetry, to comic sketches, rice packets and adverts. Written by an experienced teacher and AS and A2 Level examiner, Texts Through History is an essential resource for students of AS and A2 Level.
