(i) An introduction to the study of literature, in particular questions of genre, form, and interpretation, with texts drawn from a variety of historical periods and literary modes. (ii) This module will explore the relationship between national identity and literature by focussing on four important historical and cultural periods (the medieval; the eighteenth century; the late Victorian and Modernist; the contemporary).
