Lecture: Great Women Writers of the 20th Century

October 8 @ 8:00 pm 9:30 pm

Dr. Stephan A. Hoeller

Anaïs Nin (1903-1977) a French-Cuban-American writer of novels, essays, short stories and erotica. Much of her best-known work was published posthumously and has stimulated critical interest.

Simone Weil  (1909-1943), French philosopher and political activist. Gravitating toward mysticism—Christian as well as Platonic—near the close of her short life, her work became widely known and celebrated in later decades.

Marguerite Yourcenar (1903-1987) was a French novelist, essayist and academician, who emigrated to the US and became an American citizen. Her best known novel is Memoirs of Hadrian, published in 1951. Her work often features occult themes in historical settings.

This is the fifth lecture in the series Gnosis in Art and Literature.

Dr. Hoeller has presented weekly lectures for more than 30 years, and continues to impart valuable and unique insights on Gnosticism, C. G. Jung, mysticism, magic, alchemy and subjects relating to wisdom in culture and history.

Lectures are sponsored in part by the Theosophical Society – Besant Lodge of Hollywood.
