Reimagined Narratives: A Study of Truth, Power, and Perspective introduces students to the ways that the imaginative re-creation of culturally significant stories can enrich our understanding of how we read, interpret, and write these stories in new and contemporary contexts. 

The study provides students the opportunity for close engagement with the following paired texts: 

  • ‘Odysseus Tale: The Underworld’ from Homer’s The Odyssey, ‘Inferno 26’ from Dante’s The Divine Comedy, and Alfred Lord Tennyson’s ‘Ulysses’ 
  • Ovid’s ‘Orpheus and Eurydice’ and Carol Ann Duffy’s ‘Eurydice’
  • ‘The Life of S. George Martyr’ from Jacobus de Voragine’s The Golden Legend, Paolo Uccello’s ‘St George and the Dragon’ and U.A. Fanthorpe’s ‘Not My Best Side’

Through examining the connections between these texts in critical and creative ways, students will come to a deeper understanding of the ways that ideas about truth, power, and perspective are generated through the reading process. 

This student book is a highly valuable resource for students and teachers of the NSW Stage 6 English Year 11 Common Module – Reading to Write: Transition to Senior English. It includes:

  • Engaging classroom activities to develop skills in comprehension, analysis, interpretation, and evaluation of texts
  • Texts regarded as quality literature
  • Texts that represent a variety of cultural, social, and gender perspectives
  • Access to the full text of literary works covered throughout the study
