This module is designed to develop your understanding of the literature and culture of the twentieth century, and to strengthen your abilities in literary analysis.
Through a close reading of representative texts, the module will explore the historical and critical contexts within which modern writers strove to ‘make it new’ in poetry, fiction and also drama.
You will read a variety of genres: poetry, drama, novel and short stories from diverse national and historical contexts covering the shift from modernism to postmodernism.
The module considers both formal and thematic issues arising from these text as well as historical, sociological and intellectual contexts of literature.

register and the overall coherence of your arguments will be taken into consideration in the marking process.
