SummaryThis course will explore works by two great writers of fiction who were personally acquainted and made illuminating and provocative comments on each other's work.
Course description Students will learn about the impact of EM Forster and D H Lawrence's childhoods, social class, and education on their subsequent writing, and will also become acquainted with their theories about Literature and the extent to which these shed light on their practice as writers.
