- 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).
- Jane Austen (Online)
Many readers enjoy Austen’s novels but cannot define the qualities that make them so special and enduring. This course will help you to analyse Austen’s style and techniques, and will enhance your understanding and enjoyment of reading them.
- Three Contemporary Classics:The Beginning of Spring, Ulverton & Black Swan Green
Three novels, fresh, funny, tragic and profound, which you may never have heard of – but which have good claims to classic status: Penelope Fitzgerald’s The Beginning of Spring, Adam Thorpe’s Ulverton and David Mitchell’s Black Swan Green.
- Jane Austen’s People in their Places: ‘Northanger Abbey’ and ‘Mansfield Park’
Does place matter? Austen names two of her novels after locations. This course will examine the significance of location in her novels, but will also consider 'place' in the sense of how her characters are placed in relation to their society.
