Studying Literature in English: Grounds general points about literature and the study of literature, throughout, by reference to a small selection of well known novels, plays and poems Raises the issue of how much it makes sense to discuss film as literature and provides the basic conceptual tools that the student needs in order to study film within a literature-course framework Places particular emphasis on interdisciplinarity by examining the connections between the study of literature and other university disciplines, which has immediate relevance for students for whom literature is just one part of a larger university programme Provides an annotated list of further reading, encouraging the reader to make constructive progress with their study.
