This class will introduce students to the poetry and prose of Scottish writer Kathleen Jamie. We will focus on her recent prose collections Findings (2005) and Sightlines (2012), whilst also considering how Jamie broaches similar subjects in her poetry collections The Tree House (2004) and The Overhaul (2012). These four texts in particular mark Jamie's increasing preoccupation with the natural world, and will provide the basis for our close reading in which we examine Jamie's responses to the environment in the 21st century.


To receive credits for this class, students are expected to attend regularly, actively participate in class discussions, give an in-class presentation of roughly 10 minutes, and to submit an essay of 6-10 pages in length. Students electing to take this class in the 'enseignements complémentaires' module, or Erasmus students, must submit an essay of 8-12 pages in length.


Recommended editions: Findings (Sort Of, 2005) and Sightlines (Sort Of, 2012). Selected poems will be provided on Moodle, or you may wish to purchase your own copy of the following collections: The Tree House (Picador, 2004) and The Overhaul (Picador, 2012).
