This site is for anyone with an interest in English Literature, for those who want to brush up their study skills or simply to find out a bit more about our literary and cultural history. All the materials are free for personal or non-profit educational use.

I lectured in English Literature and study skills at UK universities for over 20 years. My aim is to continue to help students, to share my interest in English Literature and to pass on some of what I've learned over the years.

I hope that you find this site useful and that you enjoy the wit and wisdom of great writers as much as I do.

I wish you all the best for your studies. Happy reading!

Dr Beth Swan
