Approaching pre-1900 unseen fiction texts
In this lesson, we will be looking at how to approach pre-1900 unseen non-fiction texts by reading Isabella Bird's 'The Bazaars of Baghdad - Journeys in Persia and Kurdistan' . We will be using a strategy to work through the text systematically, tracing what we are told (events) and how the writer feels about them (attitude / thoughts). We will also be moving from a 'literal' understanding of the text to thinking about the 'big picture' meanings that a text has to offer - what does it tell us about mankind or human nature?
