Literature Appreciation II: More Tales from the Underworld

September 27 @ 4:00 pm - September 30 @ 3:00 pm


Tutor:  Hugh Parry

The borderline between Earth and Hell has always been permeable enough to enable writers to invite some unsavoury characters to pay us a visit. A course in 2021 looked at creepy and demonic spiritual intruders in early drama, from the miracle plays to Christopher Marlowe and early Shakespeare. In 2022 we will look at later Shakespeare and his Jacobean contemporaries to examine some more sophisticated devilry on stage.

Hugh Parry has offered adult education classes in literature for over 30 years. Although loyal all his life to Shakespeare, he has over the years given courses on a diverse range of topics, including detective fiction, utopias, ghost stories, Cowper, Swift and R S Thomas.

The first Literature Appreciation event this year is from 12 – 14 April
