English Literature has always been a large part of Singapore’s education system for decades. From the numerous timeless works of William Shakespeare, to the outspoken support of democratic socialism of George Orwell, English Literature has contributed to generations of budding intellects with the combination of the wisdoms from different eras. It is a beautiful and fascinating subject, with its intricate wordplay and masterful use of language, complete with its ability to convey complex emotions and insights.
Out of the Humanities subjects offered in Singapore’s Education system, English Literature is easily one of the more interesting one, as it is able to delve into the different ways people use language to convey diverse meanings. Even though in English Literature, the written works are produced in English language, FamilyTutor has observed a significant trend that having strong command in English will most likely help one to pass the subject. However, to ace it, one will need to possess competent logical and comprehension skills, ability to unwrap the hidden meaning in literary texts and poems. No matter how straight-forward a written work may seem to be, students are always expected to look for some hidden meaning, to think deeply, criticise, doubt, wonder and stand amazed at what is written.
