Introduction to Nightwood

Produced by Hudson Luthringhausen and Kemi Ogun

Edited by Carmen Walker

Graduate students Hudson Luthringhausen and Kemi Ogun host a discussion of a literary classic. Djuna Barnes Nightwood is as sophisticated as it is thought-provoking. This episode introduces us to the main characters of the novel and the literary criticism that has mismanaged the legacy of Nightwood. Barnes challenges her readers, but our hosts make the story accessible and realize its ultimate goal. Nightwood taps into a universal collective imagination, an enrichment activity for readers with open minds.
