English literature has a rich history – from the Anglo-Saxons to modern times, from Chaucer to Orwell. It is one of the most diverse and developed national literary traditions, which has survived and developed over several centuries to become one of the most important parts of human culture.

In this one session course we shall see why English literature is worth studying in both literary and historical terms. We shall briefly outline the history of English writing and see how reading English literature can improve our understanding of our ideas, our culture, and our times.
