Studium anglistiky na KAA UPOL


Sekce obsahuje podklady ke zkoušce z Britské literatury 3. Oficiální seznam témat ke zkoušce neexistuje, tudíž jsem podle sekundární literatury vytvořila vlastní seznam, který by měl zcela pokrývat náplň zkoušky z tohoto předmětu. Pro snazší orientaci zařazuji seznam názvů témat spolu se jmény autorů zahrnutých pod daným tématem. Viz první záznam této sekce pod názvem "Overview".

Témata si můžete stáhnout jednotlivě nebo všechna v jediném souboru. Odkaz pro stažení všech témat současně je umístěný v pravém sloupci pod anketou přímo na této stránce, odkazy pro stažení individuálních témat najdete opět pod anketou po rozkliknutí příslušného tématu.
