CANCELED L417 Spring 2019 Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophesies of Agnes Nutter, Witch
Wednesdays, 2:15–3:40, Mar. 27–May 15
Instructor: Wendy Campbell
Are you a fan of Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman? Have you already read Good Omens? Have you never heard of it? Whichever description fits you, come and join us to discover the ins and outs of this wonderfully tongue in cheek book about Armageddon. “According to Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday in fact. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring…Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.” Except that it isn't! Or, maybe it is? This wonderful cult classic has recently been turned into a TV miniseries by Neil Gaiman. The word is that it is to be aired in early 2019 on Amazon Prime TV. Students in this course are encouraged to get a copy of Good Omens, available on Amazon and to read the prelude titled “In the Beginning.”
