The Wife (Irving)

(Moved from Aug 25)

The Wife is part of The Sketchbook of Geoffrey Crayon, which is available free in the iBooks iPad app, or in numerous formats from Project Gutenberg.

We did not get to this in class last week (Aug 25), so I've pushed this reading back to today. How does this selection relate to Young Goodman Brown?

How To Read Literature...

Introduction, Chapters 1 & 2

These are very short chapters. You've already heard me say in class that I'm not asking to see any plot summary in the papers that you write. Each chapter in this book suggests one way to think about (and write about) literature, other than restating the plot in your own words.

In the comments at the bottom of this page, post a quotation from the reading that you think is worth talking about in class, and briefly explain why.
In class, I will give you a short poem, asking you to read it, mark it up, and complete an analysis activity.
Read and respond to model essays, during class. (You don't need to prepare anything.)
