Read Along with Berkeley
December 1, 2021
Join Mark Danner as he leads a seminar on Faulkner. During this session, the class examines a chapter entitled “The Bear” from Faulkner’s Go Down, Moses. Discussion questions include:
- What is Faulkner trying to tell us about the realm of nature and the realm of civilization in this work
- What effect do the revelations contained in the ledger have on the story
- Why does Ike make the decisions he does that determine the course of his adult life?
