The Immerse English Literature summer school programme asks participants to carefully consider what makes great works of writing stand out from the rest. After all, for every Shakespeare, Milton, and J.K. Rowling of the world, there are countless others closely following their writing, carefully interpreting it, and analysing why it works. Participants on this summer programme can learn to do the same by spending two weeks in the historic city of Cambridge, reading, writing and discussing some of the greatest English literary works.
This English literature summer course is designed to help young literature fans, ages 16-18, learn how texts are analysed at university-level and beyond. The skills taught during the programme will facilitate participants to understand difficult works and interpret them accurately, before deciding how best to explain their interpretation in their own writing.
The English literature summer school programme offers an inspiring opportunity for young readers to discover new works, gain alternative perspectives of previously-seen material, and develop a greater appreciation for English-language literature as a whole. Throughout the programme, participants will build a powerful tool set of techniques, often used by contemporary literary critics, that will serve them both in their undergraduate studies and future careers.
