During each semester we discuss a novel, selected poetry, and a drama. This spring the novel will be Saul Bellow’s “Henderson the Rain King”. Said to be Bellow’s own favorite among his books, we will examine the forces that drive a man through life in this blend of philosophic discourse and comic adventure. 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.
