Literature

The Group Leader is Maureen McCoy

PROVISIONAL ARRANGEMENTS DUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING AND OTHER RESTRICTIONS

The Literature Group will meet on the First Thursday of the month at 2pm on Zoom ( to be reviewed in New Year)

We look at all aspects of Literature, from ancient to modern - from a variety of points of view.

Having concentrated on British and American fiction for a number of years, last year we looked at a number of novels from other cultures

For 2019/20 we covered some of the following topics
Summer Reading
Andrea Levy
Voltaire (Candide)
Christmas stories
David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas)
Women And Marriage in Victorian Fiction
Novels of Empire (2 sessions Colonial & Post-colonial)
Golden Age of Crime Fiction
Tokyo in fiction

In 2020/21 We are hoping to cover the last 3 topics not covered last year due to Lockdown and also others to be agreed shortly
Novels of Empire (2 sessions Colonial & Post-colonial)
Golden Age of Crime Fiction
Tokyo in fiction
Christmas Stories/Poetry

Most sessions are led by a group member with some speakers from other U3A Groups and also occasional external speakers. (We will be considering the best format for Online meetings.)

Sessions can include close reading of a particular novel or poem and/or a DVD which may provide biographical information, or outline the historical context for a novel and author's work etc. (Again we will be looking at the best format for Online meetings)The main idea is to offer an introduction to a novel, poem, author or period which may lead members to wider reading, sometimes in areas new to them.

We are a small group at present so looking to recruit new members. All that is required to join is an interest in Literature and in sharing your reading experiences, interests and views. Come along and try it.

For further information contact Maureen through a message on this site, or find contact details on your membership sheet or timetable.
