English Poetry of the XXth and XXIst centuries


Facultat de Filologia, Traducció i Comunicació








Dr. Vicente Forés-López

Filologia Anglesa i Alemanya



The course seeks to provide students with guidelines about how to read and build a critical response to poems of English literature; and to familiarize them with the main conventions, genres, works and authors in the XXth and XXIst centuries of English-speaking literatures in Great Britain, Ireland and the Commonwealth. Students are expected to be able to locate individual works and authors in their historical and cultural context, and to gain knowledge of the basic techniques and conventions of the writing of poems.



Having successfully completed the course, students will be able to

  • locate individual works and authors in their historical and cultural context,
  • explain how some titles and authors are included or excluded from literary canons,
  • describe the conventions and techniques used in specific texts as related to genres, periods and movements in English literature,
  • identify passages from literary works in English that they have read,
  • describe the conflict or plot, structure, character, setting, style, and mood or atmosphere of a literary work they have read,
  • discern the meaning and theme(s) of literary works or excerpts in English ,
  • explain the way the meaning and effect of a literary text are conveyed through its linguistic choices,
  • explain how a poem’s prosody contributes to its communicative purpose
  • explain how the use of types of narrators and of focalisation condition the unfolding of narrative.

Reading Module

El presente módulo (ficha) contiene muchos datos, características y algunos aspectos que sirven para el análisis y comentario de cualquier texto, en un principio, por lo tanto, también para poesia. Si el modelo adjunto no te sirve o crees que es mejorable no dudes en modificarlo.

Autor, título de la obra, subtítulo, editorial, año de publicación, lugar de publicación. (ficha bibliográfica mínima)

Writing about poetry for GCSE English and English literature

(from: http://www.universalteacher.org.uk/anthology/aqaanthology.htm#section2 )




Theory-based classes: Lectures and case studies.

Lectures will focus on clarification and discussion of key concepts and techniques for students rather than on exposition of matter they can find in the dossiers and bibliography. Consequently, students are expected to work on assigned tasks (reading sections from course dossiers, answering questions set in advance) before attending class.

12 sessions: Introduction (4 sessions), contextual and technical explorations of the authors and works studied (8 sessions).

Practical classes: Problem solving and case studies.

Students will focus on key concepts and techniques extracted from the set readings. Guidelines and suggestions for their papers and projects will be proposed and debated.

Other activities: Tutorials for individual orientation in preparing papers and projects.


* About the Case Studies. Each student will have to present a case study during the first part of this course. The maximum extension should be between 4 to 6 pages only, and a maximum of 15 minutes for the oral presentation worth 1 point of the end grade.

The first thing you will have to do is decide about WHO (any author you want)  and WHAT (novel, poem, play, theory, school, movement, etc.) you want to write.

Once you have decided the WHO and What, you have to research your topic, locate in the “text” examples to base your analysis on. undertake the analysis and write out your essay either defending your own point of view, method and conclusion or quoting other peoples’ pov., method or conclusions. The main questions you should be asking yourself and answering with your case study are:

The topic you have chosen ¿why is it so important? what is the context of that topic in the framework of the work you are analysing? what place does it occupy in the work? in what a relationship does this topic you selected stand with the rest of the work? what do we know today about the issue? what is today´s attitude towards the issue? why do you think the author chose that topic to write about? what was his/her main intention by chosing this topic?

These, of course, are just a few suggestions to what a case study should cover, you can find your own questions, your own answers or priorities.

2nd Semester/ Syllabus     


*2nd semester starts Monday, February 3rd 2014.



Monday Febr. 3  – Intro 2h.

0) Contexts and definitions. Works and authors in their historical, cultural and literary contexts.

The problem of periods and movements in the history of English literature and their canon. Tracing the evolution of literature through time scholars often group works from a certain time frame together and label it as a period or movement. This section of The Literature Network aims to dissect these movements for the better understanding of you, the reader. The movements or periods listed here where not mutually exclusive in their time frames, they overlap, liberally. In some cases a single author can even be claimed by more than one movement. Classifying art, an art in itself, often ends up more fluid like this. Each introduction (listed below) includes a broad overview of the movement or period, examples of key works, and a list of major authors.See also our Literary Periods Timeline (http://www.online-literature.com/periods/timeline.php) for a visual reference of the evolution of literature.
