Class began as scheduled at 9:30am in Morrill Hall Room 202. The class roster listed seventeen students, unchanged since the last class meeting. Fourteen attended.
Discussion opened with questions regarding student thoughts on the annotated bibliographies that were to have been submitted. It moved from there to address the context and works of Aemilia Lanyer and only glancingly touched on Sir Francis Bacon.
Attendance was assessed informally. Students are advised to enjoy their break and come back refreshed; interesting things will be afoot.
