A novel of childhood development that calls to mind Jane Eyre or David Copperfield, George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss is an unflinching and emotionally challenging exploration of the author's childhood, intellectual aspirations, and psychological struggles. This seminar invites participants to immerse themselves in the world of the novel’s characters, themes, ideas, and techniques by reading it serially in manageable parts.
Six sessions. Registration – $230
