Assignment for 4/7

Assignment for the weekend:

Buy a composition book.

Read the syllabus.

Read “Song of Myself,” following the links on the course website. Print it out and annotate it. Find a section (4-8 lines) to read out loud and practice it. You’ll have your turn in class next week. Read, also, the Preface to Leaves of Grass and prepare to discuss it in small groups and as a class.

As much as possible, I use links for you for the reading.
