This Thing Called Literature
Friday 6th February 2015 6pm - 7pm

Literary Event, Free Event
Why, in a turbulent world focussed on economics and science, do poems, prose and plays matter? Renowned authors Andrew Bennett and Nicholas Royle examine the value of studying literature in their new book This Thing Called Literature. Described as 'shrewd, lively and at times irreverent' this introduction to literary studies delves into the complexities of both literature and the study of humanities more widely. A compelling read for students, professors and the literary aware, this practical guide to enjoying literary works gives an elevating insight into why reading still matters.
Join us to celebrate the launch of this essential guide to literature, where professors Andrew Bennett and Nicholas Royle will be discussing their intuitive new book and exploring the broader study of literature.
