"This survey module introduces students to a range of Victorian literary representations of identity as expressed by diverse authorial voices selected from across the period. While students will be encouraged to make connections between individual authors and topics, the module challenges the idea of univocality and the popular notion that there is a monolithic Victorian view of things by presenting a wealth of different perceptions and perspectives. Drawing on a wide range of canonical and non-canonical poetry and prose by male and female Victorian authors, the module explores ways of expressing core aspects of self and identity while also considering the implications of audience and contexts."
