Shorts for Summer: Four Brief Works Exploring a Female’s Perspective

ID : 1425   
« back to classes page
This course covers four classic works of literature often cited as influential by early feminists: The Story of an Hour (1894) and A Respectable Woman (1894) by Kate Chopin, The Daughters of the Late Colonel (1920) by Katherine Mansfield, and the play Trifles (1916) by Susan Glaspell. While these works are short, each has much to say about the circumstances of women at the time, insight that continues to be relevant today—for all people, not just women. Each session will provide biographical and contextual information about one author followed by an interactive discussion of the chosen texts (in the order listed). All texts are available online.
