If your English is good and you enjoy reading, thinking, and creatively engaging with literature of any genre, this will be the right course for you. In every class, we will train some of the basic close-reading and argumentation techniques used in the field of literary studies. With their help, we will explore a small sample of the most celebrated works of literature from the English literary tradition. These will include Shakespeare’s early modern Hamlet, Virginia Woolf’s modernist classic To the Lighthouse, Angela Carter’s postmodernist tour-de-force Nights at the Circus, and a selection of celebrated poems and short stories ranging from the 18th century to the present day.
