This semester at university, in comparison to last semester, I have a rather large reading list, which I thought would be nice to share with you guys! I am taking three modules: Austen and the Brontës, Shakespeare, and Poetry [creative writing].
Austen and the Brontës
For this module, I am reading 3 books by Jane Austen and one for each of the Brontës.
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
- Persuasion by Jane Austen
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
- The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë
I am so excited to be studying Shakespeare, especially as a week before my module began they changed one of the plays we were studying to Macbeth, which is my favourite! I cannot wait to study it again (although it is in the last week, which is a bit annoying).
- Henry V
- Richard II
- Romeo and Juliet
- A Midsummer’s Night Dream
- Twelfth Night
- The Winter’s Tale
I’ve read/studied/been in Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, and Macbeth, so I’m glad that there are more that I haven’t studied before.
For my poetry book, we’re encouraged to read widely of poetry, so there isn’t really a set reading list. Having said that, we do have one anthology:
- Emergency Kit edited by Jo Shapcott
I’ve read a couple of poems from here already and really enjoyed them. Although we probably won’t have much set reading throughout this module, I’ll enjoy dipping in and out of the book.
If you’re studying this year, what is on your reading list? Have you read anything from mine?
Until the next time,
