Spring 2008


Literature, theater, and the arts flourish in London. The city has a rich literary and cultural past and present and is arguably the pre-eminent world city for theater. The goal of the London program is to provide Carleton students an immersion experience in this rich milieu; to see and discuss a wide variety of the best performances on offer; and to make use of local museums and other sites to enrich their understanding of English literature and culture.


Gregory Blake Smith is a novelist on the Carleton faculty who teaches courses in 20th-century literature and creative writing. His own novels make a strong use of place, New England in The Devil in the Dooryard and The Divine Comedy of John Venner, and Las Vegas in The Madonna of Las Vegas.
