Course summary

Overview Encounter a broad range of nineteenth and twentieth-century literature and culture from Britain, North America and the English-speaking world. This course gives you an opportunity to study an eclectic array of texts and topics – including Victorian Studies, Modernism and American Studies – and to think across the period boundaries that restrict other courses. Our optional modules cover almost every aspect of modern literature and culture: from the Victorian novel and Modernist poetics to early science fiction and postcolonial life writing. King’s has one of the oldest English departments in the country, and our unrivalled central London location allows you to explore the city's rich literary history first hand. Key benefits
