Henry James and Sally Rooney [Liza Birnbaum]
All Levels | “Chief on my list for the last few years has been Henry James. I feel extraordinarily connected to his novels, like my whole life is there.” So says Sally Rooney, the young and celebrated Irish novelist. In this class, we’ll investigate the mysterious affinity between Rooney and James. We’ll read as writers, considering how these authors and their shared interest in interiority, relationships, and class differences might influence our own work. Expect both lively conversation and in-class creative writing time.
