‘Literary Landscapes’ is designed for lovers of English literature who wish to explore England with a guide. One week programmes include English tuition/excursion preparation and two full day and two half day excursions to locations of literary interest. The teaching and visits are fully integrated to give participants a vivid picture of the culture and literature of several key periods of English literary history.
Literary Landscapes has its own textbook written by Stephanie Aldred and Judith Godfrey. It offers students a review of English literary history from the fourteenth to the twentieth century, and includes texts from a variety of authors.
Participants have an opportunity to research areas of personal interest. Included in the course fee is half board accommodation with friendly hosts close to Moor Cottage.
