The Comparative Study: A Structured Approach offers a clear and easy-to-read approach to the Leaving Certificate's prescribed comparative texts. It provides detailed support to students preparing for the Leaving Certificate English examination in 2012, 2013 and for years to come.
The book looks at eleven prescribed texts for 2012 and ten for 2013, which include work from numerous playwrights, novelists and directors. Identifying key moments in all the texts, the book proceeds to explain all four modes of comparison in detail. Each mode is illustrated using detailed discussions of a wide variety of novels, plays and films.
