Modern Literature (and Creative Writing)

This course combines an intensive introduction to 20th-century and contemporary literature with detailed examination of individual writers and texts. You will develop a detailed knowledge of themes and issues in modern literature as well as valuable research skills. Through seminars and group work you will critically explore literary and cultural theory, while also developing a broad knowledge of modern literature and critical theory. You will also gain a strong command of methodologies for understanding and analysing texts and ideas, giving you a solid base from which to begin your dissertation. You will be able to choose whether you graduate with an MA in Modern Literature or an MA in Modern Literature and Creative Writing. The Creative Writing pathway is designed for students who do not necessarily have experience in Creative Writing but are keen to try it.
