The Secret World of James Bond

Oliver S. Buckton, professor of English

James Bond – 007 – is one of the best loved characters in modern literature and film. This lecture will look at the life of Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, including his dramatic wartime covert experiences in Naval Intelligence during World War II and his numerous relationships with women who became transformed into the “Bond Girls.” We will also travel through lecture and photos to Jamaica, where Fleming wrote the Bond novels at his clifftop home “Goldeneye.”
