Welcome to our summer session of English 152, Great Works of American Literature. This blog serves multiple purposes:
It is a space for sharing practical information about our course. And, it is a space for reflection on what is happening in our cassroom. I will upload daily notes on what struck me in the day’s discussion, and I expect all of you to participate in this online reflection on the debates that arise from our communal production on new insights. Sometimes I may upload a poem, share a couple of lines from somebody’s essay, or simply meditate on what is happening in the literature we read.
As you’ll see, the comment box below says “speak your mind!” That is good advice for this class in general.
Welcome on this intense 24 day journey into American literature!
