Esther Birney lecture: John Leblanc – A film presentation: The Dead

Continuing with his series of film versions of clas­sic literature, John Leblanc will present John Huston’s 1987 film of the Irish writer James Joyce’s short story “The Dead,” part of his acclaimed short story collection, Dubliners. This story is set in early 20th century Dublin during

the Christmas season, which is perhaps an unu­sual choice for a June presentation, but the film is such a classic that he knows you will enjoy it. One advantage of the film is that it is only 83 minutes long, giving us more time for discussion.

Dr. John Leblanc is professor emeritus, UBC
