Course summary

Please note this course is only available for year two (level five) or year three (level six) entry only. You will explore a broad range of literary and non-literary texts from the Renaissance to the present day and from the West Indies to the West Midlands. You will study great canonical writers and uncover the literary forms we associate with them (like Shakespearean drama, Milton’s epic, the ‘major’ Romantic poets and great Victorian novelists). You will learn of the challenges to this tradition offered by the Modernists, 1960s radicals and others marginalised by class, gender, sexuality and race. The course will equip you with the theoretical, philosophical and contextual tools to critically examine the process of literary production and reception, enabling you to make informed judgments about literary value and cultural capital. We deliver the course through a variety of learning activities which will aid both subject-specific knowledge and also transferable skills. Typical methods include lectures, seminars, tutorials, interactive workshops, independent research, individual and group presentations, formal examination and online forums, portfolios and blogs.
