General Information

This module is on the core literature programme in the School of English. It aims to give a sound grasp of prose - novels and essays - from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century (roughly, 1790 to 1910). We study authors such as Edmund Burke, Mary Wollstonecraft, William Godwin, Mary Shelley, William Hazlitt, Karl Marx, Jane Austen,  Emily Brontë, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Lewis Carroll, Robert Louis Stevenson and Oscar Wilde. Teaching involves a mixture of lectures and seminars, and there is a mid-session formative assessment and an end-of-semester summative assessment.
