The British writer Angela Carter said, “Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself... You bring a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.”
What’s the point of reading fiction?
There are many answers to that question. What is yours?
In this module we have divided the vast field of literature in English in two categories. We hope it will help you to choose novels to read. Your task is to read two of the suggested novels and write an essay where you compare, contrast and analyse the two novels. Feel free to choose other novels than the ones suggested.
