Reimagined Narratives: A Study of Truth, Power, and Perspective Student Book
For Year 11 Common Module: Reading to Write - Transition to Senior English
Reimagined Narratives: A Study of Truth, Power, and Perspective introduces students to the ways that the imaginative re-creation of culturally significant stories can enrich our understanding of how we read, interpret, and write these stories in new and contemporary contexts.
The study provides students with the opportunity to engage in a close study of the following paired texts:
- 'Odysseus Tale: The Underworld' from Homer's The Odyssey, 'Inferno 25' from Dante's The Divine Comedy, and Alfred Lord Tennyson's 'Ulysses'
- Ovid's 'Orpheus and Eurydice' and Carol Ann Duffy's 'Eurydice'
- 'The Life of S. George Martyr' from Jacobus de Voragine's The Golden Legend, Paolo Uccello's 'St George and the Dragon' and U.A. Fanthorpe's 'Not My Best Side'
Through exploring the connections between these texts in critical and creative ways, students will arrive at a deeper understanding of how ideas about truth, power, and perspective are generated through the reading and writing process.
