By combining English and Latin in equal parts you'll have the opportunity to study the literature of the English-speaking world alongside improving your language skills in Latin. Learning Latin provides insights not only into ancient culture but also into the workings of language and construction of literature in general and as such is the perfect complement to the study of English. Students can discover the earliest works in English, deepen their  knowledge of Shakespeare, find out what is great about Renaissance literature, darken their view of the 18th century, and unpack the Victorians. The course's structure allows students to develop a sound understanding of key periods, genres, authors, and ideas as well as choosing from a huge range of options. Students can study Modernism, Postmodernism and American literature, explore literary criticism, develop their own creative writing, and analyse the latest developments in global literatures in English.
