"The decline of literature indicates the decline of the nation."

-J.W. von Goethe

If you love to read everything from Jane Austen's books to the sides of cereal boxes, then a university degree in English literature may be for you. Students of literature get to reada pile of poetry and - usually including the standard canon of Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dickens - and they're given the critical tools to pick those texts apart.

Unsurprisingly, good marks in an English literature degree rely upon good writing skills. To be worthy of the masterpieces they analyse, your essays should be superior pieces of writing. Marked by Teachers can help you reach this lofty goal with our collection of English literature essays. Study the worked examples, and learn to anticipate what your professors expect from a good essay. Before you know it, you'll be your own best editor, and your essays will be better than ever.

English literature students graduate with skills that are useful in most fields of study and work. Many students go on to get higher degrees in the field,or in related subjects like linguistics; others pursue careers in business and administration, journalism, editing, and teaching.
