April Book Discussion: The Bourgeois: Between History and Literature

The Bourgeois: Between History and Literature by Franco Moretti

From Verso Books

“The bourgeois ... Not so long ago, this notion seemed indispensable to social analysis; these days, one might go years without hearing it mentioned. Capitalism is more powerful than ever, but its human embodiment seems to have vanished. ‘I am a member of the bourgeois class, feel myself to be such, and have been brought up on its opinions and ideals,’ wrote Max Weber, in 1895. Who could repeat these words today? Bourgeois ‘opinions and ideals’—what are they?”

    Somehow I missed the date change! Was wondering why I didn't find anyone there tonight - lol. I can't make it on Wednesday, unfortunately.

      Hi Hazel - I did ask the waitress, but didn't think to ask the bartender. No worries :-)

    Apologies but please note that this meetup is moved to Wednesday instead of Tuesday due to sudden work obligations. I am travelling and the mobile app does not seem to have the email attendees option. Please update your RSVP accordingly & acknowledge receipt of the update via comment post or message. Thank you!
