ENG324: Literature of Oxford

3 Credit(s)
Fulfills Core Requirement in Literature
Some of England’s greatest writers have lived and studied in Oxford and many have set their works of literature in the city and the university.  This Study Abroad course examines several Oxford novels with special reference to the influence of setting on character and plot.  Among the works to be considered are:  Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll; Jude the Obscure, by Thomas Hardy; Brideshead Revisited, by Evelyn Waugh; as well as a selection of Oxford poems.  Field trips to the actual settings of the works will be a regular feature of the course, and day trips to London, Stonehenge, Bath, and other sites are planned.
