“Connell Guides offer students a robust, academically challenging yet supportive scaffold, a lens that is sharp, myopic when needed and wide-angled as required. They unlock the text, answering queries and directing thinking.”
Colin Hall, Head, Holland Park School
The aim of Connell Guides is very simple: it is to encourage a love of literature.
Unlike most study guides on the market, Connell Guides are not narrowly focused on the business of passing exams or boosting grades. Their emphasis is broader. It is on the excitement and pleasure that can be derived from reading great novels, plays and poems.
They are intended to stimulate thought – to help readers understand what these great works are really about, what the best critics say about them and how differently they can be interpreted.
The classic works of literature give you insights into human nature you will find nowhere else. They can help you understand the world in a way no other form of communication can match. And these short guides are the key to understanding these great literary works. They will enrich your life by hugely enhancing your enjoyment of Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Hardy and other great writers.
