The discussion, led by staff and scholars from the university, is the first in a series of explorations of titles frequently borrowed from Shakespeare and Company in Paris. Shakespeare and Company, an English-language bookshop and lending library in Paris, was opened by American Sylvia Beach in 1919. The shop became the home away from home for a community of expatriate writers and artists now known as the Lost Generation.
The book is freely accessible here.
The series continues Dec. 7 with a discussion of "Pointed Roofs" by Dorothy Richardson.
A discussion of "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" by James Joyce concludes the series on Jan. 4.
Presented in partnership with Princeton University's "Shakespeare and Company Project."
