  • Description

Reading and Analysing Voices of World War One: A Companion to Senior English is a study of a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts that reveal the experiences of soldiers and civilians during the period 1914-1918.

Cross-curricular by design, this study includes a critical consideration of historical sources alongside poems by Rupert Brooke, Jessie Pope, Wilfred Owen, and Siegfried Sassoon. By analysing early optimistic voices in support of a war of defence and liberation in Europe, before transitioning to disillusioned and angry voices condemning a war of aggression and conquest, students will develop both their understanding of this time in history, and improve their ability to read, analyse, and interpret texts.

A study of the following seven Wilfred Owen poems forms the core of this unit of work:

  • ‘Spring Offensive’
  • ‘Dulce et Decorum Est’
  • ‘Strange Meeting’
  • ‘Insensibility’
  • ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’
  • ‘Futility’
  • ‘The Next War’
This student book is a highly valuable resource for students and teachers of senior English. It includes:
  • Engaging classroom activities to develop skills in comprehension, analysis, interpretation, and evaluation of texts
  • Texts regarded as quality literature
  • Texts that represent a variety of cultural, social, and gender perspectives
  • Access to the full text of literary works covered throughout the study.
