“I don’t think literature would be possible in a determined world...Mystery isn’t something that is gradually evaporating. It grows along with knowledge."–Flannery O'Connor Polonius: What do you read, my lord? Hamlet: Words, words, words. –Hamlet (Act II, Scene ii) It is far too easy to read literature without reading. In other words, the life behind and beyond the printed word requires interpretation but such interpretation is both science and art, both intellect and instinct. The purpose of this short course is to equip you with the tools to unlock the door of the work and expose your mind to those basic ideas that allow literature to speak clearly. Verbs, nouns, adjectives, and adverbs, even in the *simplist* works of fiction, are always concealing a fuller truth. Join us for two evenings in September to learn what it means to illuminate the dark brilliance that is the written word. Join Oakley Merideth, Language Arts and Rhetoric teacher at Axiom and published poet as he guides us in understanding how and why to practice literary analysis. *This is an ‘a la carte’ event purchase.
