“Literary Structures: Deep, Deep, and Deeper.” That’s what we’ll discover by following Dr. Chris Carter’s lead through Katherine Mansfield’s story “The Daughters of the late Colonel.” He will illustrate several of the kinds of structure at work in a piece of fiction. And you’ll have your own copy to do it with at the meeting. But before that, you can download and read the story on Google.
“We will find structures more or less on the surface, measurable by clock and calendar, and we will find deeper psychological and archetypal structures, not so easily marked off by any standard,” Chris promises us. “But even the comparatively shallow structures involve time, and nothing has deeper roots than our sense of time. Mansfield is particular good at crafting a story using some of all of this.” And maybe you will be, too, after spending time with Chris Carter.
Chris Carter is from Oklahoma City and a graduate of OU. Although his work took him to several other states, for the past six years, he’s been at the University of Oklahoma, lecturing in the Department of English and the Osher Lifelong Learning institute.
