A Level English Literary Modernism

Upper Sixth A Level English Literature students went on a trip to St Ives on Monday where two famous writers Daphne Du Maurier and Virginia Woolf, are known to have stayed regularly and taken inspiration from this area for their books.

On this particular trip, the students were looking at literary modernism and had a look around Woolf’s childhood summer home. ‘To the Lighthouse’ is based off the view of Godrevy lighthouse. The group took the time to soak in the art at the Tate, where they could see correlations between Hepworth’s sculptures and paintings in Woolf’s writing.
