Class: Kathy Freschi - Intermediate/Advanced Italian: "Il Maestro di Bastone" (Corte Madera)

Wednesday, August 3, 2016 - 10:00am

5 Wednesdays: Aug. 3 - 31 • 10:00 am - 12:00 pm • $160

This class will read the short story "Il Maestro di Bastone", from a compendium of short stories, by Gianrico Carofiglio, one of the most popular authors of legal thrillers in Italy today. While not a legal thriller per se, the story is suspenseful and thought provoking. The protagonist is an adolescent, enduring the divorce of his parents. It is about his becoming an adult, the formation of unsuspected friendships, and his salvation by an ancient form of martial arts. It is set in Bari. Students should be comfortable with the Passato Remoto in its written form, although the instructor will give a brief review of the tense at the outset of the course. Each class session will cover ten pages of the story. Your early registration is encouraged to gain free access to materials.
