Description

This is a new textbook designed to help new undergraduates adopt a degree-level approach to the study of English literature in their first or foundation year. "Studying English Literature" offers a link between pre-degree study and undergraduate study by introducing students to: the history of English literature from the Renaissance to the present; the key literary genres (poetry, prose, and drama); a range of techniques, tools and terms useful in the analysis of literature; and, critical and theoretical approaches to literature. It is designed to improve close critical reading skills and evidence-based discussion; encourage reflection on texts' themes, issues and historical contexts; and demonstrate how criticism and literary theories enable richer and more nuanced interpretations. This one-stop resource for beginning students combines a historical survey of English literature with a practical introduction to the main forms of literary writing. Case studies of key texts offer practical demonstrations of the tools and approaches discussed. Guided further reading and a glossary of terms used provide further support for the student. Introducing a wide range of literary writing, this is an indispensable guide for any student beginning their study of English Literature, providing the tools, techniques, approaches and terminology needed to succeed at university.
