22HUM059: Literature Something old, something new!

Writer, Sian Evans, tells us that “Literature is a complex thing that performs a wide variety of functions in society” (Evans 2020). Story telling has been used for centuries to do some wonderful imaginative and creative things for its readers and listeners. This unit selects texts that were written about 160 years apart (crudely “old” and “new”) and yet both novels reach across time – in Cadwallader’s case, to the 13th Century, to tell us about the human condition and especially about their female characters’ experience of the world. Our poetry this semester comes from a well-known 20th century Australian poet. Texts to be purchased: “Jane Eyre” Charlotte Bronte. “The Anchoress” Robyn Cadwallader. A selection of Gwen Harwood’s poems will be supplied in class. Paul Martin 0422 389 221
