For 2023/4 we will be studying novels on the theme of ‘Identity’. Literature enables us to understand ourselves and the personal and social forces that help shape our characters but it also promotes empathy; a well crafted novel helps us both see and understand the lives of others. In short Identity! We currently have ‘The Bell Jar’ by Sylvia Plath and ‘Girls Of Slender Means’ by Muriel Spark amongst others on our schedule. One of the joys of a Literature Group is discovering a lesser known work by an author. This year we read and enjoyed the delightful ‘The Fortnight In September’ by R.C. Sherriff who of course penned ‘Journeys End.’ A great choice from Marjorie White!
