Course description

Branch Event - Birds and the Landscape in English Literature:

This course aims to provide a brief introduction to how English writers have responded to the landscape around them and the birds within it. Throughout the ages, English writers have responded to the landscape around them and the birds within it, reflecting contemporary ideas about both. Some wrote about the birds and places themselves, others used them as symbols of something else. Find out why Shakespeare's King Lear calls his daughter Goneril a 'detested kite' and how Defoe's 'wildest, most barren and frightful place' became Wordsworth's sublime inspiration, where a rainbow could make his 'heart leap up.'
