Beloved by Toni Morrison
Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another.
A 4-week study course with Toby Brothers, Literary Salon Director
Monday 13, 20, 27 November and 4 December 2017: 7 to 9pm
Toni Morrison, writer, professor and essayist on issues including race, gender and forces of life, won the Nobel Prize for Literature and the Pulitzer Prize in 1988. Beloved is regarded as her best work, revealing the psychological devastation wreaked by the institution of slavery. The text is meaty, evocative, offering endless possibilities in terms of discussion of the formation of self, claiming of self, mother/child relationships, the fury of love, the permeable boundaries between the living and the not living, as well as the more predictable (but no less provocative) issues of race, gender and role of history.
Toby Brothers has over 25 years of student-centered teaching and seminar experience in France, the USA, Japan and the UK. Following her successful SAP-run series of seminars, specializing in Woolf and T.S. Eliot among other classical works, she will be facilitating the exploration of Toni Morrison’s literary work, and building a dynamic reading of this novel.
Venue: Room 8, The SAP
