English 1205Reader Response AssignmentEach student will write a response to any work or works studied this term (except for Romeo and Juliet,Shakespeare in Love, or Li Po). This is a free-ranging, interpretive assignment, worth 20% of your mark: unlike with the essay summaries, the professor is particularly interested in your personal views of the subject. Think of it as a conversation between yourself and the work you’re writing about.Choose a work that interested you: by being interested, you will be interesting. Remember Helen Vendler’s insistence that the pleasure of reading is the first reason we engage with literature: everything else –things learned, insights gained – follows from that aesthetic experience. The Getting StartedSection below is meant to prompt ideas, but you don’tneed to answer every question below. Pick the ones that are relevant.Note: This paper is due on Friday, June 22 in my office (MM219) by 4:30.
