Course details

This popular course offers a friendly, relaxed and stimulating journey through some great works of literature. It can best be described as a teacher led, student centred book club. The tutor tends to put forward some thought provoking ideas about the text and students are sufficiently enthused to read the works critically and share their own research and ideas with the group.
In the Autumn term we will read the following texts:
Faith Healer - a play by Brian Friel
The Road - a novel by Cormac McCarthy
Travels with My Aunt - a novel by Graham Greene

After Christmas, in the Spring of 2021, we will read the following:
All My Sons - a play by Arthur Miller

Saturday - a novel by Ian McEwan

The French Lieutenant’s Woman - a novel by John Fowles

In addition, we may also read short stories and poetry with themes included in the above texts.
The literature class has a loyal following but new students are particularly welcome.
