Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course, we will explore literature’s potential as a medium for social and political analysis. The set texts (by William Shakespeare, George Bernard Shaw, Fay Weldon, Angela Carter, Carol Ann Duffy and others) all centre on themes of inequality, injustice and the imbalance of power. While we will concentrate on acquiring and applying basic interpretative skills to these texts, we will also debate the various concepts of authority, power, nationhood, identity, gender, race and class implicit in them.
