We will read and discuss two literary texts to explore their contemporaneity and complexity. We will focus on the role of intertextuality to add to these texts’ many layers of meaning and intricacy which demand alert and open minded XXIst century readers. We will pay attention to their narrative modes, time and place of publication, authors and narrators, intended audiences, similarities and differences, genres and themes.
In this reading breakfast, we intend:
- To continue creating a reading community of lovers of literature.
- To continue developing reading strategies to tackle the ambiguous nature of literary texts.
