CourseGraphic There is more to literature than novels, plays, and poetry.  Essays, when well executed, intrigue the reader with a thoughtful perspective about the human condition. The goal of this study group is the interpretation, analysis, and appreciation of that perspective. Participants will develop an awareness of the essay as an art form and will refine their literary analytic skills. And, best of all, absolutely anyone, whatever his or her educational and professional background, will be comfortable reading and discussing essays. Our text will be The Best American Essays of the Century, edited by Joyce Carol Oates (Mariner Books, 2001).
