Year 13 'Mrs Dalloway' Seminar

This Thursday, Year 13 English students attended a revision seminar delivered by Dr Neil Cocks of Reading University, on the great novel Mrs Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf, which is one of the A Level set texts.  

He explored some of the critical debates on Woolf, and literature in general, and delved deeply into some of the fascinating and challenging philosophical aspects of the novel.  We also practised a close reading of an extract from the text – in some cases we got closer to the text than ever before. 

We are grateful to Dr Cocks for sharing his time and expertise with us.
