During each semester we discuss a novel, selected poetry, and a drama. This fall the novel will be Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, an early modernist novel highlighting themes of loss, subjectivity, the nature of art, and the problem of perception, a novel consistently listed as one of the top 10 in the English language. Poetry will be taken from The Seashell Anthology, Christopher Burns, Ed. The drama will be Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, an APT choice for summer 2018, which deals with themes of justice, mortality, mercy, and the dichotomy between corruption and purity.
