DESCRIPTION

The unit introduces literature from the English Renaissance, a period which took humanist inspiration from the classical world and, in turn, profoundly influenced modern civilisation. Attention is paid to how the Renaissance worldview informs the literature. Gender relations and the role of women are investigated. Renaissance art is used to clarify key themes. The unit promotes an understanding of literary form and how literature engenders literature. Two case studies of creative writing dynamics are profiled: Shakespeare's reinvention of Courtly Love and Marlowe's reimagining of a classical love story. Generic skills of comprehension, analysis and effective expression are also emphasised.

WEIGHT: 12.5%

ASSESSMENT: 1,000-word preliminary exercise (20%), 1,500-word essay or creative-writing exercise (30%), 2-hr exam (50%)
