Five Alternate Mondays

March 16, 30 | April 13, 27 | May 11

Innocence, Experience, Higher Innocence. Using William Blake’s paradigm,  and Jung’s essay on The Child (Vol 9 1) we will read five novels about the child. We will start with The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, which some of you have read before, to bring the importance of the child in an adult’s perspective. This will be followed by: A Death in the Family by James Agee, A Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers and They Came Like Swallows by William Maxwell which are all from the child’s perspective, and finally Margaret Atwood’s Cat’s Eye to look specifically at the effects of childhood trauma on adult psyches.
