This is a compilation of some of the materials that I have used to prepare my students for their Individual Oral Commentaries. These documents are updated to reflect the course changes effective with the 2013 examinations. This is for English A: Literature Higher Level. We study Frost's poetry, Hawthorne's short stories, and Woolf's essays for this part of our syllabus; however, the material here is generic for any works of the same genres.
