5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 Jan 2012
By Odbert

Very very thorough, with detailed, useful analysis. It is tailored very well to the current A level specification (OCR, anyway, I don't know about the others) with loads of material on different aspects of context and critical responses to the text.
It is clear and accessible throughout but not over-simplified.
A truly exemplary study guide.

This book was the only thing that got me through my AS English Lit exam. It has so much detail on every chapter, for ever theme and more.
