Comparative Literature and Religious Studies

Comparative Literature differs from an English Literature in that it transcends national and cultural boundaries, offering students a global view of literature. Combining Comparative Literature with Religious Studies enables you to engage with a wide range of texts, literature and systems of belief that cross geographical boundaries. In Comparative Literature, you have the opportunity to 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, Joyce and Woolf. Religion is a vital element in human culture, and today religious issues are everywhere – from current affairs and international events, to the history of ideas, art and literature, and our own immediate experience and environment. Religious Studies at Kent involves investigating and discussing these ideas and experiences.
