English Literature Degree Guide

Books, books, and more books. English literature is the study of prose, plays and poetry, spanning centuries and continents and involving plenty of reading and analysis. It’s an incredibly varied and diverse subject (just think how many different novels there are in UK, let alone in the world), and one which overlaps with history, language and the social sciences to create a picture of how literature influences, and is influenced by, major changes in society and the world as we know it.
