In my second year at Keele University I studied The Romance of Fiction, which focused on nineteenth-century American literature, and From Modernity to Counter-Culture, which studied twentieth-century literature. Due to how interesting and enjoyable I found these two modules, in my final year I selected as many American Studies modules as I could, and so I chose Film Noir and Silence, Strength and Sentiment, which studied gender and sexuality in nineteenth-century American literature. I can truly say that these have been some of the most interesting and thought-provoking modules I have taken. The professors are first-class and make the subject very interesting, opening my eyes to new ideas and concepts. I thoroughly recommend studying American Literature to anyone who is considering it.
