This course introduces students to the study of English by exploring the dynamic relationship between author, reader and text in a series of classic works of fiction and poetry. It covers a broad historical range (from Folk Tales and ballads to 21st century postmodernity) and offers a basic grounding in key elements of literary theory, literary history and the varieties of literary form.

Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 1 two-hour examination (50%); continuous assessment (40%) consisting of 2 essays (15% and 25% respectively); tutorial assessment mark (10%).
The first written exercise will constitute an unassessed plan (including a draft introduction of approximately 100 words) of the first assessed essay submission. This will increase both the coherence and utility of the assessment procedures whilst streamlining the workload of students on the course.
