1. This week, people who have not scheduled oral presentations should say when they want to do them – time is running short!
2. Spring Break reading was to a) Finish Los pasos perdidos and consider it in relationship to anything in Torgovnick, but especially chapters 4-6. That is the basis of our WRITING EXERCISE, due the TUESDAY WE COME BACK. b) Get hold of THE VORTEX – it’s our next reading (see the syllabus / reading list).
In class that Tuesday, we’ll talk about the writing and the end of Los pasos perdidos. Please take a look at the revised and constantly expanding Los pasos perdidos resources in this site.
THURSDAY I will discuss Torgovnick, chapter 9, and introduce THE VORTEX. Any time is a good time to start reading THE VORTEX, which is a short novel I am hoping we can finish discussing by April 10.
