An ongoing look at literature from the early 20th century to the present day, both celebrated writers and more neglected gems. Focusing  mainly on short-stories, read and discussed in class, but (subject to interest) may also explore modern poets and "flash fiction" / "flash drama" (miniature stories / plays). Some international writers in translation will be included. Stories by writers such as Katherine Mansfield, Dorothy Parker, Frank O'Connor, William Saroyan, Arthur Schnitzler, Naguib Mahfouz, Hilary Mantel; poetry by Elaine Feinstein, Fleur Adcock, Thom Gunn, Wislawa Szymborska, Seamus Heaney; and many more.

Includes short biographies of chosen writers. A fun, accessible way to deepen and broaden your reading.
