This weekend course is aimed at Open University A334 students. The course will cover the study of prose, poetry and drama from Shakespeare to Austen. We will consolidate what you have learned on the module so far and help you gain new insights. We will be considering texts from a variety of genres in their historical and ideological contexts, as well as the focus of critical discussions. Special attention will be paid to the material to be covered in TMA05 and students will also have an opportunity to discuss approaches to the EMA questions. Please note this course is run independently of the Open University.
