Join Boise State English Professor Cheryl Hindrichs for this discussion group over the lunch hour once each month from October through December. The focus for this series is “Representing the Good Soldier: Modernism and WWI.”
October: The Return of the Soldier, by Rebecca West. This novella follows shell-shocked soldier Chris Baldry, who returns to his wife and ancestral estate on convalescent leave.
November: Jacob’s Room, by Virginia Woolf. This is the story of a young man who comes of age just before the war, as told through the perspectives of the women and friends in his life. The story reveals how the institutions of England mold young men for service in defense of the empire.
December: Some Do Not…, by Ford Maddox Ford. Christopher Tietjens, a brilliant statistician at odds with the government during WWI, must negotiate his traditional Tory values which are brought into conflict by his obligations to his vindictive, socialite wife and his love for a charismatic new woman. br>Books are available at Rediscovered Books (10 percent discount), and at the Boise State Bookstore (25 percent discount).
