War, Passion and Possibly Love: Approaches to Genre in German Literature (MLG1016)

15 credits

This module has two aims – first, to enhance your understanding of German by training you in close reading and analysis of a range of texts, and second, to introduce you to German literary and cultural history. With the support of the module tutor, you will study poems and short texts, some from our own times but others from earlier centuries, which deal with the universal themes of love and war. The module is taught in a combination of lectures and seminars with plenty of opportunity for explanation, exploration and discussion. Previous study of German literature is not required.
