Routledge A Level English Guides equip AS and A2 Level students with the skills they need to explore, evaluate, and enjoy English.

Books in the series are built around the various skills specified in the assessment objectives (AOs) for all AS and A2 Level English courses.

Focusing on the AOs most relevant to their topic, the books help students to develop their knowledge and abilities through analysis of lively texts and contemporary data.

Each book in the series covers a different area of language and literary study, and offers accessible explanations, examples, exercises, a glossary of key terms, and suggested answers.

Unlike other series designed for A Level English students, this series has been written by senior examiners in the light of how the new specifications have actually worked out in practice. Transforming Texts : * considers why language changes, and how we transform it; * covers the key factors we need to take into account when transforming texts, including audience, register, mode, historical period, source and genre; * explores a wide variety of texts from a range of genres and periods, from Macbeth and Sense and Sensibility to Fever Pitch and The Bill; * offers a step-by-step guide to re-writing text; can be used as both a course text and a revision tool.

Written by an experienced teacher, author and AS and A2 examiner, Transforming Texts is an essential resource for all students of AS and A2 Level English Language and English Language and Literature.
