All literature lovers
- To share the joys of reading fiction.
- To discuss a selection of excerpts from Phillip Roth’s The Ghost Writer.
- To exchange ideas on Roth’s narrative techniques, his recurrent themes and his fictional universe.
- To build strategies that will enable the participants to take an active role in the creation of multiple possible readings of the novel.
In The Ghost Writer, Phillip Roth traces the first steps of his fictional alter-ego, Nathan Zuckerman, as he matures into a novelist. Pivotal in these early stages of his development is the night he spends at the house of E.I. Lonoff, a well-established author that Zuckerman idolizes. During his stay, Nathan meets a mysterious young woman whom he hypothesizes might be Anne Frank. Could she have survived the war? Like Stephen Dedalus in James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Zuckerman must fly by the nets of “nationality, language and religion” in order to forge his identity as a writer, escape the labyrinth of his family mandates and find his own artistic voice.
- Reading of key sections of Phillip Roth’s The Ghost Writer, and excerpts from James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl.
