British Literature and Landscape
Application Deadline: 1 November 2023
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. Refine your own travel essay in the Isle of Skye.
In the British Literature and Landscape Study Abroad Program, students will hike the landscapes of British literature as they develop their own writing and study the work of great literary minds, from the urban intellectual centers of London and Edinburgh, to the wilds of the Scottish Highlands and the English Lake District. The group will visit Shakespeare’s Warwickshire, climb the mountains of Wales, walk the coastline that inspired Keats and Tennyson, canoe Wordsworth’s River Wye, cycle through Dartmoor on the hunt for the Baskerville Hound, explore the ruins of King Arthur’s Tintagel, and much, much more.
