Linda Dryden on The Ebb-Tide
Mon 28 Aug 11:00am - 12:30pm
Linda Dryden, Professor of Literature at Napier University, examines The Ebb-Tide by Robert Louis Stevenson and his stepson Lloyd Osbourne. Seen as a study of imperialist society and Christianity, it's a dark and discomfiting yet powerful tale following the misfortunes of three incompetent beggars. Expect an open discussion from the start: you can either read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.
