Course Description:

Pulitzer Prize-winner, Marilynne Robinson, is a philosophical writer. Her sentences are not necessarily difficult to read, but the meaning offered in these sentences requires profound understanding of language and life. She writes, “The afternoon was loud with the giant miseries of the lake.” “They were both long and narrow women like me, and nerves like theirs walk my legs and gesture my hands.” “To crave and to have are as like as a thing and its shadow.” Tackling Robinson’s sentences and the worldview from which they
emerge will be the challenge and joy of this course.
