Course aims and areas

Within the pages of the novel we discover more than a story. We study social and cultural history by exploring the background information we are absorbing unwittingly and which is not the main theme, but which gives us a deeper and clearer understanding of the period and general minutiae of everyday life.

This term's writers include Barbara Pym and Marghanita Laski. Full reading list available from tutor Sarah Tobias:, and you are expected to participate in group discussion.
