Remarkable Novels II ( and III)
In March of 2018, The New York Times Book Review featured 15 novels 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 new participants so they can read the short reviews of each novel. Sharon Quiroz will indicate which are the six books we read in Session I. At the first meeting of Session II, we will select the next set, to continue with our research question. We’ll read approximately 150 pages a week, so we can cover most novels in two to three weeks. We’ll have discussion, small group analysis in class, occasional lectures on style, structure, etc. Sharon Quiroz has a Ph.D. in English, has published poetry and short stories, and is currently working on her second novel while she tries to sell the first one.
