Kolbe Academy's British Literature course introduces students to works that have enlarged our aesthetic and moral understanding of the world. The novels and plays in the course are classics because they both delight and instruct as they comment on the human condition. Students reading these works will learn to examine them based on genre and structure. In addition, students will also be able to examine in depth the themes of these works, often with the help of critical essays provided in the books themselves.
Students will gain:
- An acquaintance with fine works in the English language
- Learn to examine works for their aesthetic and moral meaning
- Learn to examine works based on their genre and structure
- Learn to write persuasive essays and creative pieces in response to the works studied
