Do you enjoy reading [book or Kindle]? Would you like to share that with others? Did you miss out at school? Would you like to refresh your knowledge and interest? Would you like to find out about the "greats" of English Literature?  Would you like to have a deeper understanding of what you are reading? These "personal enjoyment" elements are themselves all good reasons to join this course. We will review the major historical themes and producers of English literature since the Middle Ages to identify its strengths and challenges at the beginning of the 21st Century.
