Class canceled tuesday morning

October 20, 2006 at 2:49 pm (General)

My mother has been hospitalized up in Albany, NY with heart problems that will probably require surgery, so I’m flying up to see her tomorrow and will be gone through Tuesday. We’ll discuss DG Rossetti on Thursday, spilling over into Christina week if necessary.

Also, on Thursday, Nov. 2, we’ll be visited by Tony Harrison, who will lend us his expertise on Christina Rossetti. It wracks me to pick Christina Rossetti poems not to read, but do concentrate on these selections in your anthology: “Goblin Market,” “Birthday,” “An Apple Gathering,” “Song,” all the sonnets in “Monna Innominata,” and “In an Artist’s Studio.”

Sorry to have delayed returning your midterm essays! I’ll bring them to Thursday’s class.
