Great Literature Discussion: Nutshell by Ian McEwan (Online)
January 5, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This week’s discussion is on Nutshell by Ian McEwan:
As Trudy’s unborn son listens, bound within her body, to his mother and his uncle’s murderous plans, he gives us a new perspective on our world, seen from the confines of his. McEwan’s brilliant recasting of Shakespeare lends new weight to the age-old question of Hamlet’s hesitation, and is a tour de force of storytelling.
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.
