The J.M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice presents a Masterclass with Professor Alan Lelchuck.
Tuesday 11 April
2.00 pm – 4.30 pm
618, Napier Building
This masterclass will focus on how the writing of Saul Bellow profoundly changed the course of American literature, ending the long influence of Hemingway with his macho heroes and spare writing style, and replacing it with a more complex protagonist and sophisticated prose style. The class will include detailed examination of the stylistic techniques used in Augie March and will explore the way this led to a more open canon and future for American literature.
