Class Report: ENGL 2413, Section 005; 20140903

Class began at 12:30pm in Morrill Hall Room 301. The class roster listed 26 students enrolled, unchanged since last class meeting. Twenty-three attended, as verified through a quiz.

Discussion covered concerns of the abstract and of setting. Mention was made of such concepts as Coleridge's willing suspension of disbelief, verisimilitude, Tolkien's assertions about secondary creations in "On Fairy-stories," and Hobb's assertions about the value of depicting the mundane in "5000 Words about Myself." Student participation needs improvement from a number of students.

Students are reminded that the information on the quizzes derives directly and explicitly from assigned readings and lectures.
