Aims/Description: This module is about the birth and legacy of romantic writing. You'll write a critical essay over Christmas, and over Easter you'll write a proposal for an oral paper. You'll be invited to present that paper to our undergraduate conference after Easter. Your conference paper will be converted into a final essay. All told, you'll understand the modern world better, and will have had lots of support towards enhancing your presentation skills.
