The Twentieth Century

This module surveys the achievements of literature in Britain during the last century or so to present a perspective on the defining features of British literary culture. All three genres - fiction, drama, and poetry - are covered through representative examples selected to illustrate the development of these genres, particularly through comic techniques, the theme of art and the artist, and innovation in literary form, during a period through which the function of the literary, and the society itself, underwent great change.
