Professor Toril Moi will guide a close reading of The Golden Notebook to reach deep levels of appreciation of this remarkable text, and as a way to explore different ways of reading womenís writing today. This seminar will explore some of the following kinds of reading: historicizing, political, postcolonial, feminist, Marxist, psychoanalytical, formal, literary historical, and philosophical. We will also strive to achieve some insights about when (under what circumstances) to take the authorís person, the authorís life, or the authorís gender into consideration in literary criticism.
