More new pages

Thanks to colleagues from Hanham and Mangotsfield who have contributed resources to be found on the new pages, 17th Century Poetry, Shakespeare, and Othello. More will be going up in the days and weeks to come.
Tomorrow I will be filmed teaching ‘Waiting for Godot’. Hold onto your hats…

Wider Reading

A new page has gone up containing wider reading suggestions.  These were submitted by a colleague from Hanham!  Many thanks, you are the first!  Let’s hope that this is the start of the landslide…  More contributions please!  This site will be as comprehensive and useful as we make it!

Waiting for Godot

A new page has gone up containing resources for Beckett’s most famous play. While the resources here were created for the English Language and Literature A Level, I imagine they may be useful for The Struggle for Modern Identity, and to a lesser extent, Love Through the Ages. The Truth About Love anthology contains a Godot extract and as Beckett himself said of the play, “It’s all symbiosis”.
The playscript is an improved (!) adaptation of the one available as a free ebook from Project Gutenberg. For instance, in this version all stage directions are italicized, thus making it easier to read and comprehend. The PG version is the American version which differs slightly from the British. Where possible I have ammended the text to get it closer to the superior (!?) British version… However, not all changes have been made as I have not spotted all of them – there are whole texts dedicated to discussion of the differences – and as such it is something of a bastardization of the two. There are also a large number of errors in the PG text many of which I have corrected. However, if you spot any more, please let me know and I will ammend as necessary.
