Pack your suitcases with imagination and awe for our journey through The Buried Giant. Written by recent Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro,
The Buried Giant is a story about love, war, the act of forgetting, and the power of memory. It’s a "down to-earth" fantasy novel (no vampires; a few ogres) that’s about a couple who set off across a troubled land of lost memories in search of a son they fail to remember having. We’ll look deeply into the story and the author’s writing techniques, including voice, characterization, and plot.
A great class for ardent readers and writers who want to improve their skills.
