Three Talks by Christopher Ricks

Christopher Ricks gives three lectures hosted by the Association of Literary Scholars, Critics, and Writers. The series is inspired by T. S. Eliot’s vision of the literary critic, as one who aims “to exhibit the relations of literature—not to ‘life’ as something contrasted to literature, but to all the other activities, which, together with literature, are the components of life.” Ricks will lecture on:

October 1: More than One Waste Land 
October 8: The strength to force the moment to its crisis: Thomas Hardy and George Eliot 
October 22: Just Like a Woman? Bob Dylan and the Charge of Misogyny
