This class will focus on the work of great 20th century science-fiction writers through the lens of social critique. Novels will include Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, and George Orwell’s 1984. Students will engage in guided and careful readings, using critical analysis to understand how writers have used the science-fiction genre to offer substantial critiques of social, cultural, economic, and political aspects of modern society.
This class will continue the summer Macbeth course with guided and careful readings of Shakespeare’s major plays. Students will read Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, and Othello. Along the way, they will memorize passages, act out scenes, build vocabulary, watch performances, learn how to write analytical papers, and generally become immersed in the depths of language and meaning that Shakespeare’s plays offer.
