What do a murderous Scottish king, witch hysteria in Salem and a hobbit on a hero's journey have in common?
All will be the subject of our literary adventures this year as we read, discuss and respond to wonderful novels, plays, short stories and poems. We'll talk about the elements of literature, analyze a variety of works and discuss how these works reveal their author's worldview and impact our thinking and feeling. Our goals will be to understand, evaluate and appreciate literary works, within their historical context and measured against biblical truth.
