British Literature and Composition Year 2-Dickens & Lewis – [Live Class]

This live course is open for 2024-25 enrolment.

In British Literature and Composition Year 2, we will engage the curiosity of the students through the study of great thinkers and writers like Dickens and C.S. Lewis. The course will look at the literary techniques employed by these writers, as well as the ideas they expounded. We will also spend time analysing contemporary poets of the period. Students will learn to write in different forms, learning the conventions of these forms. This will develop the foundation laid in the British Literature Year 1 course, where we explore writing persuasively and discursively in detail. British Literature Year 2  – Dickens & Lewis will add the element of literary criticism.

Term 2 students will study a selection of Lewis’ works and those of the Inklings. The Inklings were the literary group Lewis was part of. We will explore the ideas that were being explored by the great Christian thinkers of this time, and in doing so introduce the field of literary criticism.
