Course Overview
In this course, we will focus on the poetry of John Keats. The course will start with a brief introduction to Keats and his poetry, including a discussion of the ‘Cockney School of Poetry’ and the common figures of speech found in Keats’ poetry. We will then focus on close readings of Keats's poems, helping the student to become familiar with the themes, symbols, and literary techniques that define his work. The course will also cover the historical and cultural contexts in which Keats wrote, examining how his experiences and the literary traditions of his time influenced his poetry.

The guided close reading and literary analysis undertaken in this course will ensure that the student is able to understand the nuances of Keats's poetry and is able to develop strategies for approaching written responses and literary analyses.

We will also pay special attention to literary analyses in written form, and as such the student will be guided and coached to be able to compose their own detailed literary analyses and written arguments. By the end of the course the student will feel confident and well-prepared for not only providing written analysis for Keats poetry, but in excelling the exam criterions.

Poems covered
The specific poems discussed in each course will be customised for the students curriculum (IB, A levels, IB middle years program etc.).

These often include poems such as:

Ode to Psyche
Ode on Indolence
Ode on a Grecian Urn
Ode to a Nightingale
Ode on Melancholy
La Belle Dame sans Merci
Bright Star
On Sitting Down to Read King Lear Once Again
When I Have Fears That I may Cease to Be

Express Course

Our express courses are abridged versions of our standard courses.

They are best suited as revision courses for those who have a strong grasp of the subject and looking to achieve the highest grades.

They have a run time of 6 hours, and each lesson is for an hour.

Weaker students might want to use the express course as an overview and then follow that up with ad- hoc tuition on weak areas.

Standard Course

Our standard course, with a run time of 12 hours, is best for those who need more guidance and/or have little to basic understanding of the subject/work.

The course progresses at a moderate pace and all aspects of the subject/work are covered in depth.
