Happy New Year

Dear all,

Yes, yes,  know I am horribly late with this, but better late than never!

2016 promises to be a year of two halves for me as my wife has left me (for six months) to go and have a baby in the Netherlands, while I stick it out in the day job in Uzbekistan earning money to buy some rags for the sprog. I am anticipating the second part of the year will be a lot better and I will be reunited with the wife, introduced to the baby and, most crucially, reunited with my dear old hound who has already had six months living with my parents due to passport issues!

Anyway, I know you don’t care about this stuff so let’s get to business.

I am behind on a promise to have the new iGCSE poetry section finished before Christmas, but I have a lot of time on my hands now so will try my best to get the last two boshed off this week.

After that I will be splitting my time between the new AS poetry selection and a couple of different ideas I have for expanding the focus of the site (I’ve got three ideas: a little reading guide section, with a selection of titles for people to explore with different interests and at different ages; something about universities, literature courses and how to make decisions about where in the world you should study; and potentially adding a video section with me starring in some poorly produced poetry-casts!).

Keep your eyes open in the next week or so for those last two poems and I look forward to your comments and feedback as always.

Cheers,

Mr Sir

Although I've only been teaching Literature since 2011 and did my degree in History, I think that makes me better placed than many Lit teachers to provide notes that make sense and aren't garbled and wrapped up with inaccessible terminology and effluent nonsense. After adventures in Uganda and Uzbekistan, I am now settling down in the Netherlands. However, currently I am just about as unsettled as I have ever been, with a new job, a new baby, a new country and a hundred other things going on! Ask me a question, collaborate or abuse me.

  1. Thank you so much Mr.sir
    You have helped me so much with my Igcse course because my teacher hasn’t been telling us all the analyzing parts in class and we had to do it alone which was very confusing to me since this was my first year of literature you have been of great help thank you so much once again
