Modern Fiction

Short Stories by Famous Authors

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group
As fiction developed in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it became more psychologically oriented and open to stylistic innovation. We shall discuss a short work of fiction each week by the following Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Kafka, Mann, Joyce, and Camus.

The texts for the class are Short Novels of the Masters, ed. Charles Neider, and Camus’s The Stranger -- each available from Amazon for approximately $10. Participants should order the Neider text early enough to read Tolstoy’s “Death of Ivan Ilych” for the first day of class.

Instructor Ira Konigsberg is Professor Emeritus of Film and Literature at The University of Michigan and will lead this study group for those 50 and above for 90 minutes on Mondays from September 18 through October 23.
