October 2021 - July 2022
The purpose of this unique discussion-based course is twofold: one, it provides you with regular practice in the skill of translating cultural texts from German into English, thus activating, improving and enriching your knowledge and command of the English language and culture; and two, it introduces you to, and enables you to discuss novels by seven major writers.
The theme of the new course is
Each of the novels and short stories that make up this course are stories of the human condition and of the very human responses to it: profound, moving, tolerant, and seldom without humour. The voices you will hear are those of the humanist – one who, to quote the Edwardian writer, E.M. Forster, ‘is seriously committed to human values while refusing to take himself too seriously’.
The course-leader is Philip Moore. You are invited to attend the course either from 17.15 - 19.15 on Tuesday evenings, or from 16.30 - 18.30 on Friday evenings, beginning on Tuesday 19th October 2021 and Friday 22nd October 2021, respectively. The course ends in July 2021.
