Monday Scholars
Heroes and Legends:
The Most Influential Characters of Literature
12:30- 2:00 pm
Oliver Wolcott Library
Mondays, March 20 - June 12 ~ 12:30-2:00 p.m.
Enjoy online learning and engaging discussion at the Oliver Wolcott Library
with the Monday Scholars! Monday Scholars combines the
best of online learning with face-to-face classroom discussion!

Each week, a new lecture topic will be watched and discussed in the library's
Jamie Gagarin Community Room. This session's course will be Heroes and Legends:
The Most Influential Characters of Literature and will be taught
 by Dr. Thomas Shippey who is Professor Emeritus at St. Louis University.
 OWL's Book Club Liaison, Cameron Bove, will facilitate a group discussion.

Participants only need to come ready to engage their minds and
participate in discussion. Heroes hold a special place in our imagination.
Names such as Odysseus, Beowulf, and Queen Guinevere summon up
mythic legends, while Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, and Huckleberry Finn
are some of the most recognizable figures in all of world literature.

What do these memorable characters have in common? Why do we turn to
certain stories again and again? Great heroes have lasting power because
 they offer templates for behavior by showing us models of courage and fortitude.
Throughout the course, we will analyze stories through the lens of culture
and find out how our changing culture and values affect our sense of what
makes a good hero, and how our heroes reflect the mores of our society.

Dr. Thomas A. Shippey holds a B.A., an M.A., and a Ph.D. from the
 University of Cambridge. Professor Shippey has published more than 100 articles,
 is a regular reviewer for The Wall Street Journal on both medieval and modern topics.
 His books include The Road to Middle-earth: How J.R.R. Tolkien Created
 a New Mythology; Beowulf: The Critical Heritage (with Andreas Haarder);
J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century.

All Oliver Wolcott Library events are free and open to the public.
