DESCRIPTION

Why are certain texts regarded as classics within the English literary canon and how do we encounter them today? This unit considers the importance of tradition to the ways we value, understand and circulate popular and literary texts. Students who successfully complete this unit will have built knowledge of key critical frameworks through which texts can be read and contextualised, and developed introductory skills in academic research on which to base further work in literary studies, including creative writing and screen studies.
