General preparatory reading

I’d recommend that you get some of the bigger novels read over the holidays, so that you are free to engage with critical contexts during term-time study. It would be useful to begin the term having already read the following books (any scholarly edition):

  • George Eliot The Lifted Veil (1859)
  • Wilkie Collins Poor Miss Finch (1872)
  • Henry James Roderick Hudson (1875)

I look forward to seeing what you make of these in the Autumn!
