Event: Why Victorian Literature Still Matters
Philip Davis and Adam Phillips - 'Why Victorian Literature Still Matters'
Friday 17th April, 19.00-20.00
Hochhauser Auditorium, Sackler Centre, Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Noted literary scholar and Editor of The Reader magazine Philip Davis and renowned psychoanalyst Adam Phillips discuss the enduring appeal and impact of Victorian literature and realism today. They ask why the authors and characters remain so popular and argue for the relevance of Victorian literature to contemporary society, and for its powerful evocation of human purpose, morality, secularization and belief, human stories and living in time.
