The Edexcel International GCSE in English Literature takes you on an exploration through a world of captivating literature. On the way you’ll develop the ability to engage with and comprehend a wide range of literary texts from diverse global sources. You’ll explore the techniques authors use to craft their masterpieces, from timeless classics like Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” to modern works like John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men.” You’ll dive into the art of poetry, unlocking its secrets and even tackling unseen verses. And you’ll engage with modern drama, with a deep dive into the modern classic “An Inspector Calls” by J B Priestley. It’s not just about studying literature; it’s about finding joy in every page.
