Comparative Commentaries to Go: Rebellion
The Language and Literature website is large. That’s not a boast; that’s a point of fact. At InThinking, we are delighted, and fortunate, to have subscribing schools in just about every continent. We have been unsuccessful in attracting subscribers in Antarctica, at least at the time of writing.
We aim to meet many different needs for a range of schools, teachers, and students in often very different circumstances. It is with this idea in mind that we have put together the following comparative commentary.
The thematic connection is rebellion, and the extracts are taken from Paradise Lost and Macbeth – you don’t get much more canonical than that. It should challenge the most able students. Please keep in mind that this comparative commentary is, almost certainly, much more challenging than anything that is likely to appear in an exam. And, it is an unlikely combination in the sense that both texts are ‘literary’.
In the highly unlikely event that you are a teacher who also has time on their hands, you might like to give this one a go.
