So, after the assignments and exams of January, (let’s not hold our breath, okay) I have started Semester 2 of the second year of my degree.
This semester I am studying Literature and Society (1850-1930) and Renaissance Literature as my English modules, and Philosophy of Mind as my minor Philosophy module.
There wasn’t a huge choice of English modules and these ones are going to be challenging, especially the Renaissance one. (Help me!) I’m already missing my Creative Writing module of semester 1.
However, I am heartened by new stationary to write on and neatly underline in red for the mean time, the fact that I have already read ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ and all the interesting books and lecturers that I will come across in the next twelve weeks or so.
The first book we are studying for Literature and Society is Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It’s the first Dickens book that I have ever read and perhaps it’s a good omen for the new start!
