19SumEsolenDickensHS
In this course, we will be reading two of Charles Dickens' most unusual novels, A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations. The first novel is partly historical and is set in Revolutionary France; the second is not historical and is set in the England of Dickens' own time. But both novels have to do, as is the case with almost everything that Dickens wrote, with the coming to life of a human soul, a soul that had been dead or dying. In other words, both are steeped in a vision of the world that Dickens has taken from the gospels and applied to the issues of his time.


Prerequisite: Each student should be at the midpoint of each book before class begins.


Homework: Daily, short quizzes and a final exam comprised of essay questions.


Course materials: Required texts: Penguin editions of A Tale of Two Cities (ISBN# 9780141196909) and Great Expectations (ISBN# 9780143123798).

NOTE: The course is completely taught online.

19Sum_OBrien_Flannery_400_HS

Note to new students: This course stands beautifully on it’s own. The previous course is not a prerequisite.

Total classes: 8

Class dates: Mondays through Thursdays, July 15 to 25, 2019

Starting time: 4:00 PM Eastern (3:00 Central; 2:00 Mountain; 1:00 Pacific)

Duration: 55 minutes

Prerequisite: None

Suggested grade level: 10th, 11th, & 12th Grade.

Suggested credit: ½ Semester English or Literature

Fee: $107 if you register on or before April 15, 2019 for all 8 classes. $127 after April 15. $147 after July 8.

Instructor: Kevin O’Brien

Course description: We will read and discuss several of Flannery O’Connor’s short stories, essays and letters. “My audience are the people who think God is dead,” Flannery O’Connor said.  Her stories are shocking and sometimes violent for this very reason.  O’Connor’s goal was to illustrate how the grace of God operates in our lives. “All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful,” O’Connor observed.  How does O’Connor convey this and how do her stories, letters and essays bring us closer to God?  That is a question we will attempt to answer, in this follow up to our popular first course.  This course is especially good for aspiring writers, as O’Connor often wrote on “the process of writing”, and we will examine her stories not merely for the meaning in them, but also to understand more deeply their art and intricacy.  (Note that though these stories are deeply Catholic and perhaps the most profoundly Christian fiction of the 20th century, they can be violent and disturbing; they also contain characters who use racist terms that were once common in the South.)
