Love has inspired some of the greatest literary works and this course will look at a variety of texts to explore the huge variety of views and experiences. Each session will focus on a particular idea or method – ‘the sonnet’, ‘Proposals’, ‘first love’ etc – and we will look at all three genre. The course will be based on extracts rather than whole texts and will move around the centuries each week! Shakespeare, Austen and Donne will certainly feature but there will also be some less familiar writers to enjoy. No prior reading is necessary.
