Form and uses of language


In this course we will consider how language can be used in different ways for different purposes. To do this we will use the theme of memorial and commemoration. After briefly discussing the life of the poet Siegfried Sasoon we will examine both his poetry and prose. Through this we will see how he conveys meaning in different ways for different audiences using different forms. Following this we will discuss more generally how different meanings can be conveyed using prose and poetic language.
