This course provides an introduction to English literature and film combined with intensive focus on writing techniques, and learning and research methods. The texts range from classics such as Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the novel Wuthering Heights and the poem The Waste Land, to the movie Rear Window and the twentieth-century novels The Great Gatsby and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. Each text is studied in relation to issues such as its historical context, and the nature of literature, culture and literary criticism, mainly in blocks of three weeks to allow time for reading and discussion. The delivery is through lectures combined with group discussion and written work that enhances writing and learning skills. While the content is suitable for general interest, a main aim is to provide a course equivalent to advanced Higher School Certificate studies in English, for the purpose of competitive university entrance, and as a basis for further study in English literature and a wide range of other university subjects.
