Literature at Lunchtime: The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

Tell a friend:

31st May 2011 - 12 noon

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Presented in The Victoria Room

Our highly popular series of lunchtime lectures on great works of literature are brought to you by Dr Jane Mackay.  A graduate of three universities, Jane’s obvious love for her subject, penetrating insight, wit, warmth and humanity continue to enthral.

The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

A horror story written by the absolute master of psychological exploration.  A ghost story that may or may not have ghosts!  Is the governess moral and sane or prurient and mad?  We will see if we can get towards a clear understanding of James’s intentions.  (This lecture is a repeat from last November, which was cancelled because of snow?)

Please note: Literature at Lunchtime only, there is no Booking Fee for Cash Transactions
