English Literature – an overview
Here at York St John, our approach to literature is simple: words matter. Words shape the world we live in – books have changed the world and will continue to do so – and the connections between the written page and the concerns of the ‘real’ world are a crucial part of our work.
Our English Literature experts are experienced researchers, readers and writers, who are ready to help you make connections between the written word and the world around us. We will give you the skills and opportunities to become a sophisticated reader and critic of a wide range of literary material, covering different genres, eras and cultures.
We believe reading and understanding different types of literature inspires people to develop greater insights into themselves and the wider world. If you are also passionate about reading and the power of the written word, then our English Literature course is the perfect choice for you.
