If you are someone who enjoys analysing novels, poems and plays and considering how they are affected by when and where they were written, this is the course for you. There is a strong emphasis on reading and discussion work in lessons and original ideas and interpretations are valued. We welcome students with inquiring minds who are prepared to explore and discuss a wide range of texts which are both challenging in their style and subject matter. You will consider texts in light of their critical reception and to consider how their meaning may have altered for readers over time.
