Literature Appreciation II

13th November 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 15th November 2020 @ 3:00 pm


Tales from the Underworld

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 and curdle our blood. The fear is salutary, no doubt – and the commercial potential gratifying.  This course will look at creepy and  demonic spiritual intruders – mostly in early drama, but with one or two modern surprises, just in case you thought you were safe.

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.
