Austin Briggs, the Hamilton B. Tompkins Professor of English Literature emeritus, delivered a lecture titled "The Joys of Dickens: Reading Great Expectations" on behalf of PEN at the Belles Artes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, on Feb. 2. The preceding week, at the San Miguel Biblioteca, Briggs introduced David Lean's adaptation of Dickens' novel, a film ranked number five in the British Film Institute's list of the 100 best British films of the 20th century.
