Course Description
Description: 

This is a senior elective course which surveys the literature of the English language, from the Anglo-Saxon period to the Twentieth Century. This historical survey is especially important for students who intend to study English literature in post-secondary institutions.

 

Students should ignore any reference in the course material to a Provincial Exam, as the Ministry of Education removed this requirement in Sept 2011.

 

Pre-requisites: 
It is recommended that students complete: English 11 or equivalent
No. Exams: 
4
Supervised Exams: 
Yes
Resources: 

Adventures in English Literature (Harcourt) (Athena Edition)

She Stoops to Conquer (Signet Classic Edition) 

The Tempest (Shakespeare) 

Major Barbara (Shaw)

 

A dictionary is recommended for this course. Either The Canadian Senior Dictionary (Gage)  or The Canadian Oxford Dictionary (Oxford University Press) can be used. However, The Canadian Oxford Dictionary is preferable for senior students as it is recent (1998), complete, and appropriate for use in the student’s post-secondary studies. In its completeness, however, it includes words in common usage that some parents and students might find objectionable.
