Wed 23 April 4:30-5:45, Seminar Room 2, Ellen Wilkinson
For this meeting we will be discussing the important Modernist novel Nightwood, written by Djuna Barnes in 1936. With explicit homosexual characters, Nightwood broke boundaries in content as well as style. Dylan Thomas described Nightwood as “one of the three great prose books ever written by a woman” – a quote I’m sure we’ll discuss…

As always, this is open to everyone from ug to staff.

Read as much as you like, or get in touch for suggested chapters etc. The T.S Eliot intro is also quite interesting.
