English literature is the study of plays, novels and poems. Students do a lot of talking about the texts and about the writer’s ideas. Students also learn about the background to the texts, to help them to understand why a writer wrote what they did. So if you like reading and talking about what you read, literature could be for you. Students with clear opinions are welcomed!
