American Essays

ID : 690   
« back to classes page
There is more to literature than novels, plays, and poetry; there are essays. 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. The books for fall 2018 are: The Next American Essay by John D’Agata (Graywolf, 2003) and The Best American Essays 2018, by Hilton Als (Mariner, 2018).
