Elena Ferrante has taken the literary world by storm in more recent years with the four novels collectively known as "My Brilliant Friend". This class will be a virtual visit to Naples to understand how the various neighborhoods–where the critical scenes are set–help to define the narrative. We'll visit the Rione Luzzati where the books are primarily set, as well as the Piazza dei Martiri, and the island of Ischia. We’ll learn more about the culture of Naples in the 1950s to better understand the characters and their motivations.
