What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

In The Ferrante Letters, authors and academics Sarah Chihaya, Merve Emre, Katherine Hill and Jill Richards embark on a series of critical and personal readings of the Neapolitan novels. Inspired by Ferrante’s depiction of female friendship and women’s intellectual lives, this book of collective criticism offers a new model for reading and thinking together. Join Chihaya, Emre, Hill and Richards for a series of probing lectures on each of Ferrante’s acclaimed novels, concluding with a collective interview of Ann Goldstein, English translator of the books. “The Ferrante Letters gives us a unique opportunity to read—or reread—the Neapolitan novels with four distinct guides beside us, both literary and personal, posing questions and offering insights, analysis, and discussion that enrich and deepen our experience of the books,” writes Ann Goldstein. October 16: My Brilliant Friend with Sarah Chihaya October 30: The Story of a New Name with Katherine Hill November 13: Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay with Jill Richards December 4: The Story of the Lost Child with Merve Emre December 11: An interview with Ann Goldstein Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels, as well as The Ferrante Letters: An Experiment in Collective Criticism, can be purchased from bookshop.org.
