The History Boys (Paperback)

Alan Bennett

-  

Designed to meet the requirements for students at GCSE and A level, this accessible educational edition offers the complete text of the History Boys with a comprehensive study guide. Highlights of Andrew Bruff's guide include: detailed analyses of character, theme and structure; a clear introduction to the context of the play and its author; and key quotations and activities both for the student working alone and in the classroom. An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher. A headmaster obsessed with results; a history teacher who thinks he's a fool. In Alan Bennett's award-winning and hugely popular play, staffroom rivalry and the anarchy of adolescence provoke insistent questions about history and how you teach it, about education and its purpose.
