LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

It is the aim of this course to make students understand the development of British literature, from its very beginnings until today. A familiarity with influential authors and texts, as well as the ability to critically contextualise them, is the basis for all subsequent literary classes.

After the Survey, students will be well equipped to work with British literature, as they understand connections between authors, texts, and society.

Lehrmethodik

Lecture and in-class discussion of selected example texts.

Inhalt/e

This lecture will give students an overview of British literature, from the early Middle Ages to the early 21st century. It will provide historical and social context, as well as focus on a selection of signature texts for each of the eras treated.

Topics discussed are:

  • Old English and Middle English literature
  • Tudor and Stuart literature
  • Restoration and Augustan literature
  • Romantic poetry and prose
  • The Age of Sages
  • Victorian poetry and novel
  • Late Victorian literature
  • The World Wars and Modernism
  • Non- and Postmodernisms
  • Post-Imperial literature, Genre fiction

Literatur

All texts on the reading list are taken from the Norton Anthology of English Literature, 9th edition (2012), available in our library.

Students will not be expected to buy any additional material.

Prüfungsinformationen

Prüfungsmethode/n

Written exam with combinations of multiple choice and open answers. There will also be a short essay available as a bonus option that offers students a choice of topic and that replaces the question combination with the fewest total points.

Prüfungsinhalt/e

Only material discussed in class will be part of the exam. There is one combination of a MC and an OA question per lecture session. Students will also have the option to write a short essay about one text of their choice from all of British literature.

Beurteilungskriterien/-maßstäbe

MC questions ask students to reproduce basic information from the sessions. OA questions require the ability to contextualise and critically reflect upon texts and authors. The Bonus option gives every student the opportunity to bring in their special interests in British literature and to make up for weaknesses elsewehere. (Being human, no-one can be expected to know ALL of British literature by heart after all.)
