that doesn't sound one bit strange. enjoy. how long do you think it will take you to work your way through it?


Julie -- I love reading the NA of British Lit!! When I was a teacher, I read it every year. I'm not kidding, either. The Anglo-Saxon section is one of my favorites. I also love dissecting Beowulf to figure out the parts that were inserted by the monks who copied the text (Grendel being a decedent of Cain, for example). Oh, I am SUCH a book geek!!! If you want a fun side read, there is actually a book called Grendel that "tells" the story of Beowulf from Grendel's perspective. It's short, but a fun companion piece.

I'm looking forward to when you get to the Cavalier poets ... they're another one of my favorite sections of the NA ... then the Romantics ... then the ... :)


Wow, that brings back memories. Maybe I'll have to go dig up one of my three copies (give or take) that I have floating around here...

My sophomore son has that edition for BritLit this year, and I have 3rd editions of both the English and American lit books. Maybe that's what I'll work through this summer. Thanks for the idea!
