Melbourne Masterclasses: 10 Great Books

December brings to a close the hugely popular Melbourne Masterclasses 10 Great Books for 2014. In its inaugural year, this much anticipated, sell-out series presented some of the most influential works in history, guided each month by leading academics and celebrated public intellectuals from the Arts Alumni community.

This year, the series explored classic novels such as Chaucer's 'The Canterbury Tales' and Emily Brontë's 'Wuthering Heights', and extended from ancient poetry to philosophical and political treatises, from antiquity to modernity, such as Sappho's Fragments and Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan. With an equally distinguished list of presenters, the 2014 program for 10 Great Books provided challenging, thought-provoking and animated conversations on a monthly basis.

Following the runaway success of the inaugural series, the Faculty of Arts is excited to reveal the program for 10 Great Books 2015. From Shakespeare to Marx to James Joyce and Bill Gammage, discover a series designed to get you discussing, understanding and challenging the legacy of great books.

Tickets for the 2015 program of 10 Great Books will be available for purchase online from 10am on 12 January 2015.
