Tone and Form
You've heard me say that when I ask for your reaction to a reading, I'm not interested in reading a summary of the content. What else is there to talk about?
Tone and form are two of many things we might look at in a literary passage. (I also want to spend some time talking briefly about common themes in American lit, which we didn't get to last time.)
We will also work in groups of four on a close reading assignment.
