British Literary Texts on Film and Location II

ENGL400 (3sh credits) | offered Academic Year

A broad survey of British literary texts, including one of Thomas Hardy’s best known novels: Tess of the d’Urbervilles. Henry James, Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf, Tolkien, and Lewis are all featured. Guided field trips include Hardy’s birthplace and Dorset homes. Students also visit the famous colleges, streets, and eating houses of Oxford frequented by Tolkien and Lewis. Such experiences serve to captivate and inform the students’ contextualisation of place, culture, and text.
