About

The department at the University of Essex offers a distinctively comparative approach to the study of literature; at Essex you don’t just study English literature, you study world literature in English. You explore Literature across time, geography, and genre, combining scholarly research with innovative, practical ways of engaging with texts.

Overview

You grapple with the challenges of conducting research into Shakespeare and other early modern literature, and study a truly extensive range of work; your reading takes you from African American literature, through Caribbean literatures, to the literature and performance of New York, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Moscow and London.
