Literature and the way we communicate as humans is a beautiful thing. Our abilities to persuade, provoke, subvert and criticise are an art like no other. Our instinctual tendencies to share our thoughts and our stories is part of what makes us who we are.
Whether you are here because you need to cram for that exam tomorrow, or you simply have a love like mine, Novel-Thoughts is a place for anybody with a need or a desire to learn about literature.
Whilst catered particularly for students and teachers of the NZ Curriculum and NCEA English, Novel thoughts is designed for all, to help individuals explore and analyse literature.
When studying a novel or a text, it is often unfeasible to know, understand, and remember everything that it has to offer. With this in mind, Novel-Thoughts ventures to produce clear, concise text guides that analyse and look at some of the many integral aspects in a text.
Here at Novel-Thoughts we believe in the importance of staying a lifelong learner. That’s why we continually explore both new and old literature, music, art, and film. Keep an eye on the reviews page to hear our thoughts and verdicts on anything worthy of them.
