Great Literature Discussion – Elena Ferrante: My Brilliant Friend (Online)

June 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

My Brilliant Friend is the first of a hugely popular four book series known as the Neapolitan Novels by the Italian Elena Ferrante.

It is a rich, intense and generous hearted story about two friends. Ferrante’s style lends itself perfectly to a meticulous portrait of these two women that is also the story of a nation and a touching meditation on the nature of friendship.

***

Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used. Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans.

For access information, please contact Gunther.
