Romantic outcasts of California Gold Rush in Bret Harte’s stories


Bret Harte is best remembered as one of the creators of local-colour school for his short fiction featuring miners, gamblers, women of easy virtue and other figures of the California Gold Rush. The leitmotif of his writings is the contraposition of natural human feelings like love, kindness, devotion to the madness of the nation-wide pipe dream chase of becoming miraculously rich in an instant. At the seminar, we will look into a few of the major B. Harte’s stories such as “The Luck of Roaring Camp”, “Tennessee’s Partner”, “The Outcasts of Poker Flat” and some others. Please join us on Monday, February 19 at 7 p.m. Led by Anna Dvoretskaya, senior teacher of English at RANEPA, has a TESOL/TESL/TEFL certificate.
