Courses / READING THE NOVELLA

Coordinators: Martha Drezin, Mary Ann Donnelly, Art Spar

The novella offers an intense, detailed exploration of its subject, providing both the concentrated focus of the short story and the broader scope of the novel. As such, it provides an ideal impetus for discussion. We will discuss three critically acclaimed novellas: Billy Budd by Herman Melville, Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin and Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx. Each novella will be considered over a period of two classes, giving participants a chance to reflect on and discuss relevant themes.
