What It’s Really Like Studying English Literature at Uni - Katie May

Please choose whether or not you want other users to be able to see on your profile that this library is a favorite of yours. Finding libraries that hold this item Rarely does a companion for English Studies manage to connect the investigation of language and literature so closely to a student's imaginative and practical needs" Jerome McGann, University of Virginia, USA"Rob Pope's Studying English is an impressively wide-ranging textbook that effortlessly covers such topics as the historical, social, and cultural dimensions of the English language, the principles of close reading, the intricacies of literary theory, and much, much more, while along the way it makes its readers familiar with the taking of notes, with preparing a bibliography, even with the pitfalls of job interviews and writing applications. All of this is wonderfully supported by a choice of excerpts and texts that is equally generous and varied, ranging from the canonical to real life conversations and beer commercials. Studying English is critical, creative, and enjoyable - the conditions, as Pope himself notes, for genuine learning - but it is also, and perhaps even more importantly, as interactive as a textbook could possibly be.

Interdisciplinary in approach, this text provides students and teachers with a text which supports learning and teaching across many kinds of introductory courses in English language, literature and culture.

Rob Pope casts a very wide net and his - and our - reward is an amazing catch. He shows that the differences between scholars within the field are a source of its vitality and its capacity to renew itself.
