  • Objectives
    The main aim of the course is to provide an attractive and distinctive approach to postgraduate literary study. Three core units develop an argument about broadly canonical 19th and 20th century literature and examine its cultural and historical contexts.

The course also aims to enhance linguistic competence and communication skills through advanced literary commentary. Independent learning and research activity for the purposes of extended academic writing is also integral to the course.
