University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD Lampeter and Carmarthen)
Medieval and Early Modern Literature
This residential programme enables students to study literature in English from the 8th to the 17th century, including a selection of the period�s major works, such as Beowulf, the Faerie Queene, and Paradise Lost, and some of its major writers, such as Chaucer, the Gawain poet, Shakespeare and Donne, as well as non-canonical and non-literary works by lesser-known authors; critical attention is focused especially on continuities and discontinuities between the medieval and early modern periods; for example, Anglo-Saxon heroic literature may be studied in conjunction with the heroic mode of the English renaissance epic, and medieval dream poetry in conjunction with early modern literary (as well as philosophical and medical) representations of psychological disorders; the programme is underpinned by advanced research methods, the study of theoretically informed critical approaches, and the scholarly examination of manuscripts and early printed books.
At least a 2.1 degree in English literature or a cognate discipline (those with a 2.2 may be considered for entry to a postgraduate diploma in the 1st instance); non-standard applicants are also considered.
All years: research methods; comparative and critical approaches; medieval manuscript studies; epic, religion, philosophy; bodily distempers; Beowulf and heroic literature; medieval poetry of dream and debate; dissertation.
Assessment is through a mixture of assignment and presentation supported by tasks designed to enhance research skills.
