Comparative Literature and English, American and Post-colonial Literature

Taking Comparative Literature alongside English, American and Postcolonial Literature enables you to gain strong insight into literary cultures across the world, benefitting from expertise in both the School of European Culture and Languages and the School of English. In Comparative Literature, you study texts ranging from Classical Antiquity to the present day in English translation, including works by such famous authors as Homer, Ovid, Dante, Goethe, Dostoevsky, Balzac, Flaubert, Proust and Kafka, as well as British classics such as Shakespeare, Dickens and Woolf. For the modules offered by the School of English, in addition to English and American literature from predominantly the 19th and 20th centuries, you engage with a range of postcolonial literatures in English, reading texts that address the phenomenon of empire and its contemporary consequences, for example, nationhood, diaspora and migration.
