...Well, virtually-speaking anyway. I am teaching a class this semester on the 1890's, and I'm very excited, because the fin de siecle is one of my absolute favorite time periods in art and literature! The reading list includes:
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
- The Awakening by Kate Chopin
- The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
- Mrs. Warren's Profession by G.B. Shaw
Oh, and don't forget to indulge in a bit of visual stimulation as well: Edward Munch, Aubrey Beardsley, William Morris, Toulouse Lautrec, Mary Cassatt, Degas, Alphonse Mucha, and J.W. Waterhouse.
Don't get me wrong, my students are brilliant, but it would be even more fun if you were here to chat with, too!
