OOK Group Reads Wuthering Heights
This (late) February and (early) March, the All Souls Book Group will read: Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights… …and Anne Carson’s long poem, “The Glass Essay”
Time: 07:00 pm a 09:00 pm
The Cathedrial of Manchester:
"All Souls is a eucharistically centered Cathedral whose life is shaped by Scripture, the Baptismal Covenant and our engagement with the world about us.
It is a community where all are welcome, trust is present, risks are taken, and where our gifts and graces enable us to be who God knows us to be."
Come join the All Souls Book Group for a discussion of Emily Brontë’s novel, Wuthering Heights on Mon., February 24; and come join us a week later (3/3) when University of Michigan Professor,Gillian White, will share with us her thoughts on Anne Carson’s beautiful long poem about Wuthering Heights, called “The Glass Essay.”
Selected to commence the season of Lent, Brontë’s novel and Carson’s poem explore with uncommon bravery the complexities of grief, and the sometime agony of spiritual longing. Copies of Wuthering Heights and Carson’s Glass, Irony and God (the book in which you’ll find “The Glass Essay”) are available at Malaprops Bookstore in Asheville.
Meeting Dates and Locations:
Mon., February 24, 7 PM, The Warner Building: Discussion about Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights
Monday, March 3rd, 7 PM, The Warner Building: Discussion about Anne Carson’s “The Glass Essay.”
Discussion leader: Gillian White, Associate Professor of Contemporary Poetry, University of Michigan, whose Lyric Shame: Producing XXX is forthcoming from Harvard University Press.
The All Souls Book Group is the nucleus of the Kay Falk Literary Project, which is centered at the Cathedral as part of its teaching mission. For more information, please contact Emilie White at firstname.lastname@example.org.
