Class began as scheduled at 9:30a in Morrill Hall Room 202. The class roster listed fourteen students, one fewer than at the last class meeting. Twelve attended.
Discussion opened with the usual questions about student progress on assignments. It moved from there to treat Paradise Lost, focusing on Book IX and referencing the instances of the pathetic fallacy in the depiction of the Fall.
Attendance was assessed informally. Students should note that next week will begin the use of Volume 3 of the class anthology.
