Romantic Novels Seminar: Discussion of Thomas Love Peacock's Melincourt
10th Mar 2017 6:00pm
The second of the ‘Romantic Novels 1817’ seminars is by Dr. Freya Johnston (Oxford) with a discussion of Thomas Love Peacock’s Melincourt.
Melincourt, is a vibrant satire of opinion where female novelists, female dialogue, and female education all feature prominently; the greatest joke in this novel of talk is that the hero, a chivalric orang-outang who strides triumphantly across a scene of human degeneracy, cannot speak at all.
The session is free and open to the public, but for catering purposes, we would ask that you email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know that you are planning to attend.
To be held in Queen Anne Court, Room 063.
