Literature teachers and literature lovers


Owen Sheers’ Skirred Hills is an invitation to reflect on different aspects of life which will definitely capture our students’ attention given the style, tone, and vocabulary used. Therefore, this book of poems -and this author in general- become an attainable and enriching goal when thinking about A/AS level literature exams. It is the main objective of this course to discuss and explore the different possibilities in which we can engage students in the classroom and while thoroughly prepare them to meet the expectations of the A/AS literature exams. By approaching several poems from the collection we will explore ways in which our students can have access to deeper readings and analysis to succeed in their writings.


Owen Sheers: a brief introduction to the poet and his work
Themes that can be triggered by the poetry in Skirred Hills and that will most probably be part of the questions asked in the exams:
-separation and divorce
-the geographical divides of borders
-the separation of the dead and the living
-the movement from childhood to adulthood
