Senior School Head of English, Mr Bowen co-writes two new books with OWs

23 Jun 2023
Alumni News

Mr Bowen, our Head of English in the Senior School, has recently released the two latest books in his ‘The Art of…’ series, which, amongst others are co-authored by several OWs. Included in the co-authors of the series are Susanna Mackay (2019), Jack May (2013) James Browning (2011), Johanna Harrison-Oram (2011) and Alice Penfold (2009). Having completed their first degrees at Oxford, Both Johanna and Alice are currently studying for PhD's in Literature.  Former English teacher Michael Meally who is now teaching Literature in Eire also features. The series began with a couple of books on how to write literary essays to plug a gap he perceived in what was available for teachers and pupils. As these were so well received, he went on to co-produce around 20 books on teaching and reading poetry at GCSE and A level, including the very popular volume 6 on AQA’s Power & Conflict GCSE anthology. Following the success of these, he has gone on to co-write books on plays and on novels or collections of stories. The latest book, for instance, is on 'Othello' and joins others in the 'Art of Drama' series on 'Romeo & Juliet', 'Macbeth' and 'Hamlet'. The books are critical guides, teaching manuals and revision tools.
