Description: 

This 2.5 hour course explores how examples of short fiction by women writers from more than a century ago contribute to an awakening to issues of gender equality which are still with us today.
Looking at short fiction from a century ago, this taster course explores early incarnations of women writers’ awakening to the prospect of gender equality. Focusing on the close-reading of three short stories -- ‘The Story of an Hour’ (1894) by Kate Chopin, ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ (1892) by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and ‘The Garden Party’ (1922) by Katherine Mansfield – we will discuss how the writers achieve their effects and assess the degree to which the concerns of these stories persist today, more than a century later.
If you enjoy this taste you might want to sign up for our 10 week Literature and Nostalgia Course starting at the end of September. (Course ref: C3680897)
