Bulletin Board for English 112, Section 33 Spring 1999
Welcome to our online discussion!
This format emphasizes your written contributions to the
discussion of the work we are looking at in class each week, and should give you
time to think about what you want to say and contribute it quickly. New comments
are added at the top, so in order to read the postings in order, you have to
read from the bottom up. In order to see new postings, reload the page. Remember that you
are only "present" if you contribute to the discussion, and those who contribute
more, and more thoughtful comments, will get higher marks for participation.
Make specific reference to the parts of the work that support your
observations. In discussing these works, feel free to
disagree with each other and to ask each other for an explanation of opinions
and points of view which you don't understand, but please treat each other
courteously. One of the marks of an educated person is the ability to
debate an issue with someone without personalizing your disagreement.
Poetry - Pattern
Start with an observation about your own poem, perhaps
explaining why you picked this one. Then find one of the other poems to make a
comment about, or to ask a question about; and then things should pick up from
there. The person who suggested the poem does not have to be the one to answer
questions about it--anyone can.

- Leslie Morris suggests Pastan's "The Imperfect Paradise," Lit 878-9;
- Adam Roy: Nemerov's "Grace to be Said at the Supermarket," p. 674 (see the questions on p. 675)
- Paul Glass: "I choose "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. I like the repeated use of
the "or" sound and it flows really well. It can be found at this site: http://www.pambytes.com/poe/raven.html. See you on-line."
- Lamar Walker & Marcus West: nothing yet--shame on youse guys.
