30 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module examines the relationship between literary narrative and the human mind. It provides an opportunity for students to explore a variety of cognitive, narratological, and stylistic theories about how literary narrative is structured on the page and conceptualised in the mind. Students will be encouraged to make use of the theories and frameworks they encounter on the module to investigate a diversity of literary texts from a range of different genres and periods.

Restrictions on availability: This module is primarily intended for students on the MA in English Language and Literature, although students on other MAs in the School of English may take it if they have an appropriate background in literary linguistics.
