Tragedy A Level Series
Tragedies are stories of misery, madness and murder. So why read (and watch) tragedy? It is one of literature’s most popular and enduring genres, but what possible enjoyment can an audience get from watching characters in the depths of despair? What does tragedy tell us about human existence? What does tragedy actually mean? In this series, we will examine all the different aspects of Tragedy and how you can apply it to your English Literature A Level. Written by Alan Scott, who is a senior examiner, it will provide you with the debate, analysis and examples of great tragedy.

Schools and students are loving Audiopi
Audiopi has been very useful and I am singing your praises. Our students achieved 93% grades 4-9 at literature - and the podcasts really helped our pupils to go into the exams feeling confident about the texts.Also, the podcasts are very engaging and particularly useful for helping pupils who struggle with reading chunks of text, such as those with dyslexia

I like the way I can listen to a debate on the way home from school; I don’t have to be in a classroom or at a desk!
