This historicist approach to the study of literature rests upon reading texts within a shared context and works from the belief that no text exists in isolation but is the product of the time in which it was produced. The focus of this course is to encourage students to explore the relationships that exist between texts and the contexts within which they are written, received and understood. In line with this approach, students follow a two year course of study that allows them to engage with poetry, prose and drama both diachronically (produced across a very broad
time base) and synchronically (produced within a clearly defined time period). Connected by the theme of Love Through The Ages, students will have the opportunity to engage with literature from the pre-1900 era. A focus on the shared contexts of texts will be explored through Modern Times: Literature from 1945 to the present day.
