SU18-29 Short Stories: The Gems of Literature
Mondays: 11 a.m.-12:20 p.m.
6 Sessions: May 14-June 25 (NOTE: No class on Memorial Day, May 28)
Well-written short stories are the gems of literature–small powerhouses of compelling characters, moral imperatives, and psychological richness. They draw the reader right in and deliver a jolt, quietly or dramatically, at their conclusions. Classics and contemporary stories will be discussed. The proximity of despair and joy, the vulnerability and power of women, the search for inner freedom in men, and the mystery and beauty of ordinary lives will all be explored in our story analyses. Course Fee: $90; Member: $81.
