Remarkable Novels I (II and III) **NO CLASS ON NOVEMBER 22**
In March, The New York Times Book Review featured 15 books by women that their critics see as “opening new realms to us, whose books suggest and embody unexplored possibilities in form, feeling and knowledge.” They say these books set the agenda for the 21st century. So the question for this class is: what does that agenda look like? Before the first meeting I will send the NYT article to participants so they can read the short reviews of each book. At the first meeting we will select 4 of these to begin to answer our “research” question. Only some are currently available in paperback, but I will try to get discounts at book stores. We’ll read approximately 100 pages a week, so we can cover most novels in three weeks. We’ll have discussion, small group analysis in class, occasional lectures on style, structure, etc. Sharon Quiroz has a PhD. in English, has published poetry and short stories, and is currently working on her second novel while she tries to sell the first one. NO CLASS ON NOVEMBER 22.
