English Literature will encourage you to enjoy the literary canon and its infinite variety, through a study of writers’ methods and the influence of the social, cultural and historical contexts in which texts where written.
You will be expected to read as widely as possible and will be given opportunities to read and discuss texts creatively, rigorously and independently. Even dramatically!
You will study a variety of texts, including prose, poetry and plays. These will include literature from pre-1900 and post-200.
