HEMINGWAY'S PSYCHOLOGICALLY MINDED ARTISTRY

British child psychologist, literary critic, and essayist Adam Phillips, Ph.D. writes, "I think that reading what used to be called Literature is probably better preparation for the practice of psychoanalysis than the reading of anything else." Psychoanalyst and professor of literature Michael Zimmerman, Ph.D. has provided the rich opportunity to read fiction closely and systematically for NCSPP for the past 4 years through his year-long courses. This year, his course will focus on Ernest Hemingway, one of the founders of literary modernism in America. Participants will read novels The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell To Arms and short stories "Hills Like White Elephants," "Snows of Kilimanjaro," and "The Killers" to name a few.

This course will meet on Mondays, October 8, 2012 through May 6, 2013, from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM in San Francisco.

Early enrollment ends September 24th. Register now: http://www.ncspp.org/listings/2012_10_hemingway.html
