Designed to support AQA English Literature Option A: WW1 and its aftermath, this tour will focus on the core prose and drama texts you have chosen for course work and your preferred poetry text for the written examination. Around this core, and after discussion with your literature guide, we will build a stimulating mix of wider references.

Historic/military context, diary entries, letters and extracts from other poems, autobiographies and novels will fascinate and challenge your students. We envisage that certain overarching themes will underpin our tours. We outline these in order to give you a flavour of our approach.

"Come along lads!"

What brought one million men to enlist in the early months of the First World War? We examine the role of persuasive language and early war literature in achieving this unique phenomenon.
