Journeys in literature: Cold Mountain

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will be looking at quest narratives and how 'Cold Mountain' fits into this literary genre, particularly in relation to 'The Odyssey'. We will have reflection points throughout the lesson to help you think through our new learning and make links to ideas we have already explored. You'll be reading a new extract from 'Cold Mountain' today, one which focuses on our second protagonist, Ada, and her journey. At the close of the lesson, there will be a learning recap quiz to consolidate today's learning content.
