Heartlands Bookclub is discussing “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” by Muriel Spark
February 26, 2016 @ 5:00 am - 6:30 pm
“The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” is a sublime miracle of wit and brevity, and a Scots classic that’s a masterclass in narrative construction and the art of “less is more”. The action focuses on the romantic, fascinating, comic and ultimately tragic schoolmistress Jean Brodie who will, in the most archetypal sense, suffer for the sin of hubris, her excessive self-confidence.
At first, her ideas about beauty and goodness, her mysterious glamour and charm will dazzle and seduce her girls – “the creme de la creme” at the Marcia Blaine School, but in the end the same gifts will cause her downfall.
