Preliminary Module: Texts, Culture & Values
There is one module which is studied for Preliminary Extension English, which is Texts, Culture and Values.
In this module, we analyse a core text and then compare this to subsequent appropriations into popular culture. Through examining the different contexts in which these texts were produced, we analyse and explore how these texts reflect the values and attitudes of their contemporary context.
The topic we will be exploring is The Archetypal Quest (or The Hero's Journey).
