Literary Theory - ENGL704

This unit considers some of the major issues in contemporary literary theory, following its development from Romanticism to postmodernism. It is designed to draw on and encourage students’ research abilities. Topics have been selected for their relevance to literature and literary enquiry, and where possible the seminars will be oriented towards showing how theory is related to these matters. Students will develop their own research projects that address this relationship between literary theory and literary works.
