Hours & Credits
This module will introduce students to a wide range of different writings during the later part of the
nineteenth-century including drama, poetry, art and literary criticism, the short story and the novel.
Students will be encouraged to explore such issues as the construction of the self and personality,
representation of the body, gender and sexuality, the figure of the artist, and degeneration as well as
making a more general survey of the visual and literary imagination in the writings of the period. The
module aims to build up confidence in approaching a wide variety of literary texts (including poetry)
and to improve close reading skills.
