The schedule for the day is as follows:

2pm – 2.15pm Welcome to Liverpool Hope and our English Literature course

2.15pm – 3.15pm Victorian Landscapes
This workshop will focus on the representation of rural and urban landscapes in Victorian fiction, with a particular focus on Charles Dickens’s Coketown, George Eliot’s Middlemarch and Thomas Hardy’s Wessex.

3.15pm – 4.15pm Wilfred Owen
Wilfred Owen is one of the best-known poets of the twentieth century and the quintessential war poet. He is regularly studied at schools and colleges but has he been misrepresented and misunderstood? This session will be based on Guy Cuthbertson’s new biography of Owen for Yale University Press, and it will be of help to any A-Level students studying the Literature of the First World War.
