It emphasized close reading, particularly of poetry, to discover how a work of literature functioned as a self-contained, self-referential aesthetic object.

Keaton Jennings says he has ignored criticism of his selection for the tour of Sri Lanka after scoring an unbeaten 146 in the first Test.

The century was the opener's second in Tests, coming 23 months after his first, on debut in India, and helped England reach 322-6 before declaring to set the hosts a world-record 462 to win in Galle.

Jennings endured another difficult summer but says he has been unfazed by calls for him to be dropped prior to the series and is instead hoping to push on and produce more important knocks for England.

"I suppose all you can do is try and score runs when you get the opportunity," he told Sky Sports.

"At the end of the day, the summer was tough and performances weren't up to scratch, I'm happy to admit that. Hopefully now I can keep putting in performances that put us into match-winning positions.

"I did [read criticism] a year ago and think I got myself into quite a state reading that, waking up in the middle of the night stressing about it but no, not anymore. I just let myself listen to a core group of people who I suppose have stuck with me for the last 25 or 26 years.

However, Silva has defended Walcott, claiming he doesn’t understand the criticism he has received. Speaking ahead of the weekend’s fixture against the Seagulls, Silva said: “I don’t know what type of criticism is possible.” “Not just Theo, in our attack, with the chances we create in some moments we should have done better in the United game but sometimes it’s football.” “I have nothing to say about our players.” “I have to repeat. Even against Crystal Palace, [Walcott had a] big chance” “If you score in that moment the confidence goes higher. Not just with him but all of our forwards.” “Theo and all of them have my confidence to play at their level. I’m working with them to improve these things.” Silva also commented on Lookman’s recent run of form, suggesting that the former Charlton Athletic youngster is close to earning himself a first-team starting berth. Silva continued: “He’s pushing. Not just Ademola, but Bernard.” “It’s important to have these headaches to decide.

"It's tough but when you bat with a guy like Stokesy because of his aura, the way he hits the ball and the way he goes about playing, it is made easier. Then Jos walks in and belts it all over the place as well so it's just a really, really pleasing day from a team perspective."
