So we got painfully behind. At least I did, and my Cool Breeze friend. :) We were technically supposed to have read Picture of Dorian Gray last week, to finish last night, but some "difficulties" popped up that had us all a bit behind. Good news though, I now have the GRE Literature test book, but no time to really look at it yet. I've flipped through it and actually feel comfortable with all the "general" information I saw on literature and theory. For this week we're reading Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure. Happy reading, and we'll be posting more information as our muddled brains and lives will allow!
For the 28th, read "The Rape of the Lock," and then on the 30th "Fern Hill."
For the 1st, we will start off with Eliot's "The Wasteland" (hang on to your hats on that one!). I found some interesting sites on the poem, which I will list below if you want to take a look:
--"The Wasteland HomePage" (Interesting connection to another Bruegel painting)
--An interesting forum post about each section of the poem.
--Another web site dedicated to an analysis of the poem.
--This site "Bookrags" has some nice links to biographies of Eliot, as well as articles, etc.
For the 3rd, read "Lycidas," followed by "Comus" on the 4th, and the play Arms and the Man to round out that week.
