It’s an icky book about a pedophile who’s up to no good from the first page. It’s also one of the greatest novels ever, a hilariously upsetting story with amazing sentences. So what’s the deal with Lolita? What can we learn from it about matters such as character, imagery, and the use of humor? We’ll look carefully at the book and then generate, share, and compare work, practicing those narrative particulars. It’s a Lolitathon that’ll sharpen your storytelling skills, whether in fiction or memoir.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
