Class began as scheduled at 9:30am in Morrill Hall, Room 202. Twenty-one students were listed on the roster, four fewer than at last class meeting. Seventeen attended.
Discussion centered on the Anglo-Saxon elegy, including the problems of the term (noted by Klinck and Magennis) and cultural contexts supporting the elegaic mood.
Students are exhorted to keep in mind questions of what is mourned in the elegies and to continue reading. Work on abstracts and research papers is strongly recommended.
