Roam the landscape that fed Shakespeare’s imagination. Climb peaks and walk the lakeshores where Wordsworth composed his verses. Meditate at the table by the window where Austen wrote her novels. Hike across the Brontës’ moors. Take a meal in the pub where Tolkien and Lewis’ Inklings conversed. Stroll the streets memorialized by Joyce.
In the British Literature and Landscape Study Abroad Program, students will hike the landscapes of British and Irish literature as they develop their own writing and study the work of great literary minds, from the urban intellectual centers of London, Dublin, and Edinburgh, to the wilds of the Scottish Highlands and the English Lake District. The group will visit Shakespeare’s Warwickshire, the mountains of Wales, the coastline that inspired Keats and Tennyson, King Arthur’s Tintagel, the Scottish Borders of Sir Walter Scott, and much more.
