Annual Jacques Berthoud Lecture

Nobel prizewinner Toni Morrison counts Henry James among the great authors who ask us “to imagine others” and confront “the danger zones such others may represent.”  This lecture will investigate Morrison’s notion of literary ethics and explore James’s own belief that the art of the novel relies on the ethical representation of characters’ lives.

A drinks reception open to the public will follow, in the foyer of the Berrick Saul building.
