Abstract This lecture must be attended in conjunction with the PS 1-part of the Basic Module 'Introduction to Literary Studies'. The lecture series has several functions: it is designed to give you an historical overview of literary periods within global English-language literatures (including the literatures of the British archipelago, of North America, and of the postcolonial world) via a number of exemplary texts; it will offer you a glimpse of close-reading methods exemplified in the lecturers' interpretations of those texts; and it will allow you to see your professors at work in their respective areas of specilization, facilitatiing your choice of seminars and topics in subsequent seminars as you continue on with your degree in English. Of the eight texts dealt with during the semester, four will be compulsory reading during your PS I, and four will be examined separately. Texts or extracts from the texts will be posted on moodle except where you can reasonably be expected to obtain an orginial copy yourself (e.g. Shakespeare).
