English Literature

This course blends compulsory elements to enable students to extend and develop their research skills and explore research issues such as the nature of archival study, genre and textuality, the relationship between print and manuscript, interdisciplinary, and questions of cultural and political context, and an optional element that enables them to specialise in a specific period. The optional element is achieved through 1 of 3 pathways, which give students the opportunity to specialise in a particular field of literary study. These pathways are: the long 19th century; 20th century; contemporary literature. Authors and areas to be studied on these team-taught period-specific modules may include: Daniel Defoe, Jane Austen and the novel; Lord Byron and romantic poetry; Oscar Wilde and Victorian and fin-de-siécle literature; James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Modernism; D.H. Lawrence and regional literature, and a range of contemporary poets and novelists, such as Ian McEwan, Paul Muldoon, Alice Oswald, and Derek Walcott.
