ENGL 101: World Literature
This course seeks to look beyond the boundaries of traditional courses in English Literature by enabling students to explore a wide and exciting range of texts: from world literatures in English (Rushdie, Munro, Atwood), to the literatures that have influenced the development of English (from the Bible and classical figures such as Ovid and Homer, through to Medieval and Early Modern authors such as Dante and Rabelais), to modern and contemporary world authors in translation (Kafka, Borges, Salih and Murukami), to new media writing and the graphic novel.
The course is also designed to foster new and exciting fusions between traditional literary criticism and creative writing, and to enable students to become more conscious of writing practice and process.
Any text on this course which was not written in English will be studied in translation. No additional language skills are required.
NB: successful completion of this course does not lead to acceptance on to English Literature as a single or combined degree course at Part Two. Students wishing to progress to Part Two in English Literature need to pass ENGL100 English Literature.
