This learning experience will be more â€śhands-onâ€ť than others in that youâ€™ll actually be deconstructing some literature. Please take the time to read Sarrasine by Honore de Balzac. Itâ€™s very short, a good read, and can be found by clicking the link provided.
As you read the story, think about the meaning of the story and itâ€™s theme(s). What does it tell us about identity, especially sexual identity? The difference between man and woman? The identity of the self?
As usual, coffee and tea are provided and a possibility of heading to lunch after the discussion!
[Note, the link is to a free, plain-text version of the story and you have to scroll down through several pages of disclaimers before you get to the actual start of Sarrasine.]
