British Literature (English 12) College Prep

 This course is a survey of British literature from the Middle Ages through the Modern Era. However, our second semester will be a study of the works and life of C.S. Lewis. We will be reading a selection of his works covering some of his novels for children, science fiction, fantasy, myth, and various essays. The first semester will include an overview of four major literary periods: The Middle Ages, The Renaissance, The Age of Revolution and The Age of Reform. This Christian historic approach to British literature will concern itself with the political and historical ideas and their influence upon the authors. The class format will include lecture, discussion and reading, as well as audio/visual teaching aids.

A year-long syllabus will be sent home to ensure communication between parent/teacher, student and tutor. Materials required: British Literature for Christian Schools, Bob Jones University Press. (1992 and newer editions) Available for order from: or (A few are available in the HERC library). Five books by C.S. Lewis are required for the 2nd Semester. Any edition may be used and may be checked out from the Public Library system if needed: The Magician’s Nephew, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, Out of the Silent Planet, Till We Have Faces.
