This course compares and contrasts literary writings by women from across Europe. We will read and analyse a selection of short stories and novels by contemporary writers from different European nations. We will study the social and cultural context of each writer in order to enrich our understanding of the texts’ form and content. Our focus will be on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in order to compare the ways in which writers respond to the same historical context from different perspectives. We will also consider works by writers of European origin who write in different parts of the world, as we question where the boundaries of ‘European literature’ can be located. We will pay particular attention to practices and theories of translation.
