we gather at an outdoor table in the back
Event: Discussion of two classic stories that have been adapted into movies. You are invited to view the films and compare them to the stories (if time permits). The books to read are:
- Arthur Schnitzler, Dream Story. Also known as Rhapsody: A Dream Novel, it is a 1926 novella by the Austrian writer Schnitzler (128 pages). It was adapted into a film by Stanley Kubrick calledEyes Wide Shut (1999), starring Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise.
- James Joyce, “The Dead.” First published in 1924, this story is the last one in the Irish writer Joyce’s collection of short stories, Dubliners. It is about 50 pages. A film version of The Dead exists as well: it is the 1987 drama directed by John Huston, written by his son Tony Huston, and starring his daughter Anjelica Huston.
