Lifesaving Literature in a Time of Pandemic

Instructor: Gail Lipsitz

Why are so many people these days drawn to histories, novels, and movies about plagues and epidemics? Isn’t our current reality depressing enough? During the past 6 months, Covid-19 has motivated hundreds of poets and writers of fiction (as well as artists, photographers, and musicians) to find creative outlets for their experiences, feelings, and insights. In documenting the worst events of their times, writers have always told stories of courage, humanity, love, and survival that can help us understand what we are going through today, process fear and grief, and find hope and comfort.

While the bubonic plague engulfed Florence in 1398, Giovanni Boccaccio wrote “The Decameron,” imagining 10 young people who quarantine outside the city and tell each other stories to escape from the calamity. Inspired by this classic, “The New York Times Magazine” devoted its July 12, 2020, issue to “The Decameron Project,” a collection of imaginative and intriguing new short stories set against the backdrop of the Coronavirus. In this course we’ll read and discuss 6 of these stories and several new poems that explore the impact of the pandemic on individuals, families, and communities, and imagine the future. Ranging from pathos to humor, satire to surrealism, all the selections reflect how adversity engenders creativity.

Readings will be posted on the Myerberg website the week before each class meeting. This class is Limited Enrollment, Gold Subscriptions required, call 410-358-6856 to register. Readings are posted here: https://www.myerberg.org/gail-lipsitz/
