- Utopias and Dystopias in English Literature
Through seminar discussions we will address the origins of the Utopian genre, its developments in the 20th century and the degree to which the genre is a means of commenting upon the present as much as it is a way of speculating about the future.
- Under the Dreaming Spires: Oxford as Seen through the Novel
The Oxford dream - or nightmare? We study three enjoyable novels (Thomas Hardy: Jude the Obscure; Philip Larkin: Jill; Evelyn Waugh: Brideshead Revisited) in the place in which they are set, which brings you inside the Oxford experience.
- The English Country House in Film and Literature
From studies in class, passion and inheritance, to whodunnits, mysteries and ghost tales, this course explores the stimulus which the English country house offers writers from several centuries of British literature.
- Middle English Literature (Online)
Middle English Literature is not all prayer and piety and men in armour. Discover a rich cultural heritage in Middle English poems, plays and prose (modern translations).
