Literature


Literature (T)

Literature is best suited to strong students who are keen readers, with a genuine interest in the examination of complex, challenging literary texts. It is suitable for those students interested in pursuing literary studies beyond college. Literature can be combined with English T in a major, or to achieve a major minor or double major.

Literature fosters an appreciation for the power of language through study of literary texts, and develops students as independent, innovative and creative learners and thinkers. Students explore how literary texts from the past and present, from Australia and other cultures, shape our perceptions of the world. They actively participate in detailed evidence-based literary analysis and in the creation of imaginative texts, inquiring into the relationships between authors, audiences, contexts, attitudes and values.
