In 20th Century LIterature we began this week our excursion into Absurdist Theatre: this week Beckett and Pinter. Our text book from last year (Understanding Literature) is an invaluable resource here, with a wonderful chapter on the roots of Absurdism... there are some great web links in the Understanding Literature web site as well.
In Australian Literature we are tackling one of the hardest reads so far. David Malouf is demanding, but incredibly rewarding once you find your way into his mindset. This can only be done after a second read of this novel... so get your skates on! I look forward to getting a sheaf full of great questions from all first years... David thrives on questions.
