|Women in Literature|
|Session||12 weeks 30-Jan|
This reading discussion course examines the roles, nature, and relationships of women through fiction, poetry, drama, and essays written by women. We will focus on two of the most acclaimed female writers of the 20th and 21st centuries: Alice Munro, masterful short story writer and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in Literature for 2013, and Marge Piercy, poet, novelist, playwright, essayist, social activist, and Cape Codder! Their lives and art should give us much to examine and relate to. The texts are Too Much Happiness by Alice Munro and My Mother's Body by Marge Piercy. Both can be purchased online at thriftbooks.com. Please bring both texts to the first class.
