About the course

This course allows you to understand how literature works.

Drawing on our best understanding of language and mind, you will explore:

  • how a literary work can have several interpretations
  • how some characters can feel real
  • how you can become emotionally involved in a text and immersed in its world

You will understand how fictional people and imaginary places can be so emotionally, politically or artistically powerful. All of these are matters of 'style’.

Guided by our expert stylisticians, you will work at the interface of linguistics and literature, following your own interests and research. Whether your background is in linguistics or literary studies, you will come to appreciate the workings of text, culture, politics and reading, while discovering your own identity as a stylistician.
