Odyssey Virtual September 12, September 12, MondayBrought to you by Odyssey September 12, 2022 - October 17, 2022 (6 sessions) Monday, 6:30 pm ET Anyone who believes that short stories differ from novels only in length has never read a great short story.   During the past 13 years, this course has remained extremely popular, with some of the same great authors, but with different stories.  In this fall's course, we will enjoy works by Anton Chekhov, Henry James, James Joyce, Edith Wharton, W. Somerset Maugham, Doris Lessing, Edgar Allan Poe, Amy Tan, Isaac Bashevis Singer,  Richard Wright, and others.  Discussions will focus on character, plot, theme, setting, and atmosphere as well as historical/cultural contexts, but, above all, on artistry.   Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies Current and retired full-time Johns Hopkins faculty and staff, as well as their spouses or domestic partners, are eligible for tuition remission. Eligibility details can be found here. After registration, tuition remission eligibility will be confirmed by the Odyssey registrar.
