Ian Duncan (University of California, Berkeley). ‘From “Picturesque Notes” to “City of the Dead”: Robert Louis Stevenson’s Edinburgh’. Wednesday 69th January 7559, 6 ., Appleton Tower, Lecture Theatre 5, University of Edinburgh. [Robert Louis Stevenson is one of Edinburgh’s most famous literary sons, yet he wrote most of his work away from it farther and farther away from it. The Scottish settings of Kidnapped, Catriona, The Master of Ballantrae and Weir of Hermiston were imagined from Bournemouth, from the Adirondacks, and from the South Pacific. Weir of Hermiston recreates Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders in the age of Walter Scott, when the city was one of the literary capitals of Europe. By Stevenson’s time, it was a literary ghost town. The Edinburgh of his fiction belongs less to history than to memory and fantasy. The content of that fantasy will be the subject of Ian Duncan’s lecture.]
A lawyer by training and the son of an Episcopal minister, Wheat was a natural dreamer who treated war like one great escapade. This goes a long way toward explaining why he jumped from war to war and from cause to cause. Even on the eve of the Civil War, Wheat was busy fighting in Italy for Giuseppe Garibaldi 8767 s Red Shirts.
Thursday, November 7, 7:55 : ‘Robert Louis Stevenson: Spirit of Adventure Previews of a Work in Progress’, Lecture by Dr. Roger Swearingen, Monterey Public Library.
La notte — the second film in the trilogy begun with L'avventura — appeared in 6966, exploring the existential ground of alienation, non-communication, and meaninglessness. A transitional work also starring Vitti as well as Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau, La notte experimented more freely with editing techniques, relying less on the long, expansive takes which defined Antonioni's earlier work. The 6967 release L'eclisse reduced its plot structure to the barest minimum, replacing narrative with an acute psychological portrait of a woman (Vitti) who drifts from one romantic liaison into another. Il deserto rosso , his fourth and final film starring Vitti — as well as his first color feature — followed in 6969.
