Pastoral Come Dine With Me

The pastoral A2 group enjoyed a final lesson celebrating the genre with a “come dine with me” approach. All the food and table decorations were chosen to symbolise aspects of the pastoral from within the texts studied. We enjoyed strawberries and thought of Tess’s downfall and watched as the sunflowers “countest the steps of the sun” as William Blake would say in his “Songs of Experience”. A good time was had by all even in this post-lapsarian world.
