10 Books for Every English Degree Reading List - Oxford

Estimated Reading Time: 7 mins
1. Beowulf (c. 700-1000) – Anonymous. This epic poem was originally written in Old English (a language which you may have the option to study as part of your university course) but Seamus Heaney has written an up-to-date translation.
2. The Canterbury Tales (c. 1387-1400) – Geoffrey Chaucer. The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories in verse told by a fictional group of pilgrims on their way to Canterbury Cathedral – you can dip in and out of as many or as few as you like.
3. A Midsummer Night’s Dream (c. 1595-6) – William Shakespeare. Shakespeare is a must-read for any English student! A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a more unusual choice than Hamlet or Macbeth, and more to the point it’s one of his shortest and most accessible works.
4. Emma (1815) – Jane Austen. Though Emma is less famous than Pride and Prejudice, many critics believe it’s Jane Austen’s best work. You might be familiar with the plot from the Gwyneth Paltrow movie adaptation or the 1995 film Clueless: it’s about the ‘handsome, clever, and rich’ Emma Woodhouse who decides to play matchmaker for her friends, though she’s convinced she’ll never get married herself.
5. Mary Barton (1848) – Elizabeth Gaskell. It’s not as well-known as Gaskell’s other great work, North and South, but Mary Barton is still a brilliant, exciting (and relatively short) Victorian novel.
6. A Doll’s House (1879) – Henrik Ibsen. Henrik Ibsen was a Norwegian playwright whose works caused a stir across Europe. Though not all English courses require you to study literature in translation, it can be good to show that you have an appreciation of it nevertheless.
7. Selected Poems (c. 1917-8) – Wilfred Owen. Wilfred Owen is considered by many critics to be the greatest poet of the First World War and his work still resonates today.
8. The Bell Jar (1963) – Sylvia Plath. Though published over fifty years ago, this semi-autobiographical novel is still incredibly relevant today thanks to its frank depictions of mental illness and life as a woman in a restrictive society.
9. The World’s Wife (1999) – Carol Ann Duffy. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and always highly readable, this poetry collection plays with our preconceptions of famous women from literature.
10. The Kite Runner (2003) – Khaled Hosseini. The Kite Runner is an example of postcolonial literature; it’s a novel which deals with the devastating legacy left by empire.

1. The first-year English course at Oxford is mostly divided between Early Medieval English Literature and the literatures of the Victorian period and of the 20th and 21st centuries. Early Medieval English is taught throughout all three terms; the period 1830-1910 is taught in the first term (Michaelmas) and the modern period in the second term (Hilary). The teaching of these subjects is done by a mixture of tutorials and classes here in Balliol; and there is a complementary programme of lectures and seminars offered by the University English Faculty, and you are encouraged to take full advantage of that. You will also be taking an introductory course (‘Paper 1’) which is taught by a series of compulsory Faculty lectures as well as by classes and tutorials in College. You will be assessed on all this work by a number of examinations, called Prelims, which you will sit at the end of the third term (Trinity), as well as by a Portfolio for Paper 1 submitted during Trinity.
