We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us. - Marcel ProustCome with The Reader Organisation on a journey into the heart of the short story. Over the course of six weeks we will explore six short stories, each concerned in different ways with travel, a journey, being abroad.

Which is ‘foreign', the visitor or the country visited? Does travel open the mind or close it in? Or, to put it another way, does it isolate or connect?

We will share our journeys with writers including Kipling, Forster and Katherine Mansfield, in the company of our ever-reliable guide Brian Nellist (aka Nellibob). With almost fifty years experience teaching the reading of literature, Brian continues to bring serious wisdom, deep attention and an engaging manner to this perennially popular summer course.

Copies of the text will be provided. No preparatory reading necessary.
