W19-53 SPIRITUAL AND MORAL ISSUES IN MODERN FICTION
Wednesdays: 11 a.m.-12:20 p.m.
8 Sessions: Jan. 16-Mar. 6
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
John G. Parks

As serious literature, good stories offer what Matthew Arnold called a “criticism of life.” As such, stories invite readers to a reflection upon our condition in the world. This often entails grappling with spiritual and moral issues such as innocence and guilt, loyalty and betrayal, choice and fate, meaning and emptiness, and hope and despair. Our exploration will be prompted by reading stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Albert Camus, Grahame Greene, James Baldwin, Joy Williams, Robin Black, among others. We may find that these stories offer a diagnosis of our condition and a challenge to our beliefs.
Silver Member: $95; Gold Member: $85.50.
