British Literature Is a Relief, After All

oldbooks.jpgI think I’ve struck a goldmine of a professor with my Brit Lit instructor. She is a Ph.D. with a care and concern about keeping people interested in reading. One of her emphases is that we understand the works that we read (which is almost all poetry [gag] and one novella [Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]) and concentrate on the historical significance of the Romanic “proper” and Victorian periods with heavy emphasis on biographical information on the authors themselves.

It appears that there won’t be all too much reading after all, and the exams will be deeper material that builds upon the weekly quizzes about the biographical information from our trusty copies of the Norton Anthology. We’ll see how tomorrow’s Expository Writing class goes.
