British Literature: a Study of British Writers


British Literature connects excellent literature to significant historical events, expanding your students’ understanding of literature and history.

In addition to a better understanding of history, reading excellent writing will help your high schooler develop solid writing skills!

Using “living” books instead of textbooks,  your student will study written works of powerful British authors and poets such as William Shakespeare (pictured on our cover), Geoffrey Chaucer, Charlotte Bronte, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen, and C.S. Lewis.

This full-year, high school level course will have your homeschooled high school student studying two plays, multiple selections of poetry and one selection of epic poetry, several short stories and four novels. (An optional honors track often includes extra reading.)

British Literature incorporates the essay writing skills taught in our Essay Styles for High School course and we recommend that course as a prerequisite to all of our literature and history courses.  (Essay Styles may also be taken concurrently with any of our literature or history courses.)

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?

You don’t have to daydream about tying them to their chairs to get their work done.

Instead, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and dangerous escapes. Not only are many of the books we recommend exciting, they often teach real-life lessons on overcoming adversity and building character.

Instead of begging them to read another chapter in their ho-hum textbooks, immerse your children in the sights and sounds of history through reading excellent books. Bring history, science and fine arts to life by reading our best-of-the-best book suggestions and choosing among our many activity and lesson ideas.
