Texts in the City - Richard III

There comes a point, when a book or film becomes a text, that study can take the joy out of reading. Every Tuesday afternoon in terms one and two, we try to rediscover a sense of love and wonder about the texts on the VCE English list.

This week, it’s Richard III by William Shakespeare.

Texts in the City

Studying a book or film can be a short-cut to consigning it to boredom. But our Texts in the City series – a gift to students, their teachers and lifelong learners – brings the VCE English and Literature lists to life.

Each week, our hosts – authors Lili Wilkinson and Tony Birch – will interview experts intimately familiar with the texts, unearthing those hidden gems that could help your essay shine.

Good luck to all VCE English and Literature students in 2013.
