MA in Modern European Literature

The MA in Modern European Literature covers a range of national literatures (English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish), and gives students the opportunity to read major literary works in their language of original composition. Students select modules covering at least two different European literatures (in addition to English) from the indicative list below (subject to availability):

  • CP805 European Modernism: Sexual and Textual Deviance
  • CP808 Writing the Self: Autobiography in the Modern Period
  • CP810 Comparative Literature in Theory and Practice
  • CP811 Writing Unreason: Literature and Madness in the Modern Period
  • CP813 Literature and Medicine
  • FR807 Postmodern French Detective Fiction
  • FR872 Theories of Art in Modern French Thought
  • GE804 German Modernism

Once students have passed the coursework modules, they proceed to write a Dissertation of 12,000 words over the summer vacation on a relevant topic of their choice.

You gain subject-specific skills in:

  • the ability to read and analyse complex texts in at least two languages, as well as English
  • the ability to read literature in a comparative European context
  • the ability to differentiate between the formal implications of differing genres (ie poetry, prose, drama) and to respond to the differing problems of these genres
  • the ability to situate literary texts in their socio-historial context.
