The History of English Literature
The History of English Literature deals with some of the great works of English Literature in a way that is light and fun without being too superficial. The show relies mainly on a series of great stories to keep the audience engaged, but it also mixes in a quiz, a game and a lot of interesting information.
The show features stories by Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Bronte as well as some famous classic poems. However, as the conclusion of the show explains, the main aim of the show is to encourage students to not be afraid of the classics and generally to seek out and embrace good quality writing.
