Peter Josyph via ZOOM

One of the great masterworks of 20th Century fiction, E. M. Forster’s 1910 novel Howard’s End, interrelates three different families from three different social backgrounds. James Ivory’s 1992 film, based on Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s Oscar winning adaptation, also won a Best Actress Oscar and a Golden Globe for Emma Thompson; an Oscar for Best Art Direction; a special prize at the Cannes Film Festival; and 24 other awards, as well as nominations for James Ivory, Anthony Hopkins, Helena Bonham Carter, and Vanessa Redgrave. In the first session we will discuss the novel and the complex process of adaptation. The second session will be a lively discussion of the film, which is available on DVD and for streaming through Amazon Prime on your own during the week between the two classes.

[A Zoom link will be sent to you prior to each session, typically on the day before your class and the morning of your class.  If you have any questions or need help getting online, feel free to call us at 516-480-5733 and we’ll get right back to you with assistance.]
