LITS2306 HISTORY OF CRITICISM

BOOKLIST 2015-2016

Booklist Advice

Please note that I have attempted to provide copies (in PDF format) of all the Required Readings listed on the schedule for each module.  (Please draw to my attention any dead links or other problems.)  Of course, there are in many cases, alternative sources of various kinds available on the World Wide Web, in the Main Library and elsewhere which you may prefer to use.  Whatever the source you use, you should read and study the Required Readings on your own and prior to the relevant class. 

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY, HOWEVER, TO BRING A COPY OF THE NOTES IN QUESTION WHICH ARE ALSO PROVIDED TO THE RELEVANT SEMINARS/LECTURES BECAUSE WE SHALL BE READING THESE CLOSELY IN CLASS.

To save printing costs, you may wish to store the notes on your laptop, iPad, Kindle or other such device, if you have one, and bring them to class in this form.

You would be well-advised to also study any Recommended Readings listed for the light they may shed on the Required Readings.
