University Book Haul – Year Two, Part One

Good morning my loves!

So, with October fast approaching, so is the beginning of the second year of my English Literature degree. Now, in case you’re wondering, yes I was doing Law, no I didn’t like it, and have now credit transferred to something that I am completely passionate about. As I’m studying part time alongside work, I’m only studying one module at a time. This year my module contains three units, The Renaissance and the Long Eighteenth Century, Romantics and Victorians and The Twentieth Century.

Today’s post is the books that I have bought for this year of uni. There are some things not included on this list as they are singular poems or a very short collection of poetry and they are being supplied by the university.

Some of these books I’ve already read which will be handy for me, and some are completely new to me. I think it’s fair to say that I’m excited to get going. So much so I’ve read two of them already and the course doesn’t officially start for several weeks.

Anyway, enough dithering. let’s get on with the haul!

The Renaissance and the Long Eighteenth Century

Othello by William Shakespeare // The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster // Oroonoko by Aphra Behn // Candide, or Optimism by Voltaire

Romantics and Victorians

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley // Wuthering Heights by Charlotte Bronte // The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Twentieth Century

The Lonely Londoners by Sam Selvon // Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel // The Emigrants by W G Sebald // Dubliners by James Joyce

Have you studied any of these books? Do you have a favourite? Let me know in the comments!

Peace and pages
