Clarissa Vaughn (Session Two): A Day in Her Life
In The Hours, Michael Cunningham describes the world of his heroine living in New York City at the end of the twentieth century, during the AIDS crisis. He begins with a moving description of the last day of Virginia Woolf’s life. The new virus is devastating to the lives of many, including Clarissa’s friend, Richard, for whom she is preparing a party. An award-winning motion picture was made of The Hours, which we will also discuss. The previous session (class 1.3.2) is not required but is recommended.
