British Literary Studies (Britische Literaturwissenschaft)

British Literary Studies aims to delve deep into the subject of literature: We analyse and interpret texts from Shakespeare to Fifty Shades of Grey and consider the various genres and their markers. Literary studies is also concerned with literary theory and criticism. The texts covered stem from all epochs, from many different countries and contexts and deal with diverse subjects such as children's picture books, fantasy bestsellers and obscure texts you might have never heard of but will come to enjoy.
