Description: 

This course examines the connections between literature of various kinds and its settings, and interrogates the reader’s reaction to the strategies by which place is depicted. We shall be studying fiction, drama and poetry, and it is hoped that at least one writer will be able to visit the course. We shall be going on field trips to explore some London locations, and shall be watching some interviews of writers, and some dramatic versions of their work.
