University of Bristol
The University’s Department of English is committed to making literary studies rewarding for all. Staff research areas in the English department cover literature, poetry and drama from the middle ages to the contemporary period, using many perspectives and literary theories. The English stream is designed to broaden your literary, critical, historical and intellectual horizons, providing an opportunity for you to take your interest in the subject in new directions. We will look at texts in a wide range of forms and from many different periods, reading, analysing and discussing them together. In the process, we will consider what literature is and how we should study it, how to make sense of puzzling texts and how to improve the way you plan, structure and write essays. The sessions are designed to help you develop your analytical and interpretive skills and start to explore some exciting ideas and areas of literature. More than anything, the sessions will give you a sense of what it might be like to study English at university level.
