Edna O’Brien, Saints and Sinners

with Michael Shurgot

Class Description

With this collection of short stories, Edna O’Brien “introduces us to a vivid new cast of restless, searching people who remind us of our own humanity.” Of her work, Irish poet Seamus Heaney wrote: “One great virtue of her writing is the sensation it gives of a world made new by language. Hers is a lyric language which is all the more trustworthy because it issues from a sensibility that has known the costs as well as the rewards of being alive.” For the first class, please read “My Two Mothers." Edna O’Brien received the 2011 Frank O’Connor Prize for this collection of short stories. We will use the following text: Edna O’Brien, Saints and Sinners. New York: Little Brown & Company-Back Bay Books, 2011. In Person, Room B2 Mondays: 9:30am - 11:00am Class Limit: 15
