Have you ever found yourself wondering about your family's past? Maybe you've looked through old photos and letters or asked your grandparents to share their stories... Storytelling is a natural way to both preserve and pass on our history, and that is particularly what Faulkner did in most of his works as his characters’ vibrant personalities and the panoramic vision for the Yoknapatawpha saga unfold to your imagination. At the seminar we will regard some of Faulkner’s major writings and have a closer look into one of the short stories to get the idea of his way to show psychological drama and emotional depth, typically with long serpentine prose and high, meticulously-chosen diction. The event is held in English. Led by Anna Dvoretskaya, senior teacher of English at RANEPA, has a TESOL/TESL/TEFL certificate.
