American High School students Encounter Dance
by John Gould
with a Foreword by Dr Nicholas Birns
Dance Class offers an extraordinary collection of essays about Anthony Powell’s great comic novel from John’s two courses (2001-2 and 2007-8) teaching Dance to senior high school students. The young authors discuss issues of character, plot and theme; investigate historical background; chart personal relevance; parody characters and situations; even write a treatment for a drama. This book reveals fresh new ways of looking at Dance.
