SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE is Southwest Neighborhood Library’s literary book discussion group. It is devoted to discussing the philosophical and moral themes found in literature.
This is a story about a condemned prisoner in sixth-century Rome, who gains a new understanding of the meaning of his life while undergoing incarceration. He does so through an encounter with a surprising figure, Lady Philosophy. Here, Lady Philosophy is a fully imagined woman who advises and guides Boethius through his grief over his loss of status and then leads him to a renewed sense of himself as a free soul inhabiting a human body.
