I know I'm cutting it a little bit fine, but I'm just wondering how many people are for English next month. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am excited. Anyway, here's the reading list, I got it from module descriptions, which we get during induction, but I sent away for them myself, because I was impatient.


English in Transition:


  • William Shakespeare, Othello
  • Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays [for Lady Windermere’s Fan]
  • Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot
  • selected poems and critical materials will be made available on Queen’s Online (QOL).
