EGL120 The ' English' Tradition: An Introduction to Literary Studies

This course introduces you to the process of close critical reading through an exploration of canonical texts. The exploration of literary forms, genres and eras will enhance your understanding of the premise of literary studies which suggests that the text acts to constitute truth, question the singularity of truth, as well as reflect on various aspects of the human construct of ‘truth’. It examines novels, poems, and plays from the early seventeenth century to the nineteenth century, including some of the most significant texts across that period.
