Are you a GCSE or A Level English Literature student, teacher, or homeschooling parent? If so, please feel free to get in touch with me, either via this website or on my email (sophie dot duncan at chch dot ox dot ac dot uk). I’m very happy to help with resources/discussion for either Shakespeare, 19th century literature, or 20th century drama.
- I have online filmed lecture series on Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice and Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House available via Massolit – any teacher (and thus any student) can now get a free login to this resource during the Coronavirus crisis.
- My new student edition of A Doll’s House for the Methuen Drama series is now available to pre-order from Bloomsbury (or get your local independent to pre-order!).
- I have radio programmes on Shakespeare and the Suffragettes and on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion (the latter presented by the lovely Laura Wade!).
- I have recently done a lot for A Level students on Hamlet, King Lear and Othello: get in touch for details.
If you’re in need of help with other texts, don’t hesitate – if it’s not my area, I’ll find you someone who can. Similarly, if you’re preparing an Oxbridge English application, I’d be glad to talk about that! I should have been lecturing at the UNIQ Easter school – if you were meant to be coming to UNIQ for English, let me know! We can chat!
Meanwhile, I’m (as per) trying to write a book, work with a Mutual Aid group, and grow a lot of vegetables from scratch in our living room. At the last count, our flower pots included repurposed Pringles tubes (halved), a Lurpak pot, an apple juice carton, and a bottle. Our watering can is a former oil drizzler. I hope you’re all keeping well, and please, stay at home.
