Christmas by the fireside

11 Dec 2018,10:00 am - 12:30 pm
The livingroom, Percy Road
London, United Kingdom

A masterpiece of mystery and suspense, Henry James's The Turn of the Screw, is my ghost story of choice for this year’s festive Bite. Bites is an excellent opportunity to learn new ways of approaching a book in a single session – great if you’re pushed for time or want to tickle your taste buds before deciding to join me on one of my standard 6 week courses. What could be better than the prospect of spending two hours absorbed…

Uncharted Waters: Virginia Woolf

10 Jan 2019,10:00 am - 14 Feb 2019,12:15 pm
The livingroom, Percy Road
London, United Kingdom
£260 Sold out

In Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf’s experiments with narrative technique and multiple perspectives take the novel into uncharted waters, exploring individual consciousness, interweaving lives and unspoken memories and desires in ways that are at once challengingly innovative and refreshingly direct. Yet these are not mere technical experiments: both novels are moving explorations of family relationships and conflicts, of the shattering effects of the First World War and the very nature of artistic creation. This course runs over 6 weeks and…

28 Feb 2019,10:00 am - 28 Mar 2019,12:15 pm
The livingroom, Percy Road
London, United Kingdom
£240 5 tickets left

I first read Jane Eyre as a teenager and was immediately captivated by the rebellious spirit of Jane’s voice and her journey from downtrodden outsider to mistress of all she surveys. Jane got to have it all. Or did she? In this course you will have the opportunity to see the novel as both a liberated portrait of female desire and as a darker engagement with issues of sex, power and race. In the final two weeks of the course we will turn…

Property and Propriety: Mansfield Park and Howards End

26 Apr 2019,1:15 pm - 24 May 2019,3:30 pm
The livingroom, Percy Road
London, United Kingdom
£240 6 tickets left

Mansfield Park is Austen’s least-loved novel but it happens to be one of my favourites.
