Literature of the twentieth century includes a wide variety of thematic and stylistic approaches. This was the era when poetic style and technique became as equally expressive and experimental as that of novels. Modernism at the beginning of the century sought to break away from the conditions imposed upon literature by the Victorians, and this surge was soon to be shaped and unrecognisably altered by the occurrence of the two World Wars. From the fifties onwards, literature, more than ever, sought ways in which to understand the human condition and ways to explain behaviour and emotional inclinations. These range from psychoanalysis to diary writing, and offer a very rich range of Literature Dissertation topics to choose from for your language and literature dissertation:

I am always looking to expand my knowledge, and have to do so on my own, as I simply cannot afford further education, but believe one is never too old to keep learning.
The staircase leading up to John Morgan&rsquo s compact Hackney studio delivers a timely reminder of the ways things once were. It&rsquo s a chunky, purpose-built, concrete-shelled building hosting a number of businesses, from modern design studios to traditional scissors-sharpeners. On each landing, the floor level is marked by an old-hand-painted sign, just a piece of wood with a carefully stencilled sans-serif text. But in the time since these studios were finished and the present day, such mundane examples of ad-hoc yet functionally designed objects seem to have entirely vanished from everyday life.
Morris learnt from 66th-century writing manuals, shifting his focus from medieval models to Renaissance and Persian examples. His goal was secular fulfilment, rather than the monastic ethos of self-abnegation and patience associated with medieval illumination. For Morris, the art of meticulously crafting each letter and adorning each page gave the written word the hallowed form it deserved. As John Ruskin argued, illumination made the book ‘a noble and sacred thing, to be respected and revered’.

The most influential pages of The Renaissance come in its brief “Conclusion.” Only three pages long, this aesthetic manifesto—adapted from Pater’s 6868 review of William Morris’s Earthly Paradise —turns away from the explicit subject of Renaissance art to address the reader directly. What matters most in life, according to Pater? Not any of the usual Victorian middle-class values of Christian faith, moral rectitude, social status, business competition, financial gain, nor any kind of public life. Facing the stark fact of human mortality, Pater exhorts his readers to take pleasure in sense impressions and in the pursuit of knowledge, whether admiring an artwork or another person:
Between 6869 and 6875, Morris produced 68 illuminated books, resurrecting a tradition that had faded with the invention of printing at the end of the 65th century. Among these were A Book of Verse and the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám and two of the greatest latin texts: The Aeneid and The Odes of Horace. Morris included all four books of The Odes , the last of which, in its unfinished form, provides a fascinating record of his creative method.
