Below are a selection of courses that we are running, based on the subject of the course you were looking for:

  • Irish Literature 1940 to the Present
    A survey of Irish literature and its contexts from 1940 to the present, focusing on poets, dramatists, and novelists, and considering the impact of language debates, cultural movements and political events.

    Poetry and the First World War are inextricably linked. This course will examine that link through the study of some of the best known poems of the period, as well as some less familiar poems written by American, French and German poets.
  • Humour in Eighteenth-Century Literature
    “For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?” Discover the wide variety of humour in Long-Eighteenth-Century literature, and the many uses (and abuses) authors put laughter to.
  • Many kinds of love - a literary study
    A course on erotic love, sibling love, forbidden love, spiritual love, ingenious love and the comic and tragic contradictions to all these states. Authors include Emily Brontë, Faulkner, Mann, Turgenev and Goethe, and a range of poets from Donne to Auden.
  • What`s so great about Austen? Isn`t she just bonnets and balls?
