Approaches to English Literature - ENGL120

This unit develops skills at university level in critical reading, textual analysis and writing about literary texts. It equips students with a range of key terms, concepts and practices for further studies in English literature or for any text-based discipline. Short literary texts and weekly critical studies provide focal points for developing detailed and informed ways of interpreting different kinds of narratives. Readings and online discussions treat themes such as identity and memory, and explore narrative concepts such as genre, characterisation and representing the imaginary in literary texts.
