IGCSE 0475/Edexcel: To Kill a Mockingbird

  • Course level: English Literature

Description

To Kill a Mockingbird is a set text for papers 0475 IGCSE and IGCSE Edexcel English Literature exams.

An enormously popular novel, written by Harper Lee, published in 1960, this novel explores the various evils of American society, prevalent even in this day and age. Racism, social casteism, and prejudice are just but a few of the main themes portrayed in this novel.

Set in a fictional town in Alabama, during the much dreadful Great Depression, the plot revolves around a little girl, her older brother, and father-lawyer who defends the African American for a crime that he was falsely accused of.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a wonderful blend between a little girl’s coming-of-age story and a serious, darker drama that throws light on racism and prejudice, and how it affects the African-American members of the community.

With this course, you will be able to understand, study, and analyse various themes, devices, and how the author brings an effect through the use of language.
