On one of the many rainy afternoons this May, the third Great Loves Lecture took place at Mayflower Bookshop. The subject of this lecture was Emilio and Angiolina from Italo Svevo’s “Senilità,” known in English as “As a Man Grows Older.” This month’s lecturer, Ruud Hisgen, delivered an inspiring talk on this couple from one of the most well-known novels by the famous Italian writer, concluding with a lively discussion with the audience.
