An increasing number of A-level qualified students are embarking on their study of university studies in German without training in the reading and study of literary texts. The purpose of this module is, therefore, in part to provide an introduction to this activity by means of linguistically accessible and relatively short texts. At the same time, it is intended to engage those students who have received such training and to develop their interest in literary study.
