Welcome to English 206

Welcome to our course blog for English 206, English Literature from 1800 to the Present, for the Fall 2014 semester. This will be our online home for class discussions, links to readings, viewings, and listenings, an ever-available syllabus, advice on your papers, and many other resources. Every week, I'll be posting a brief account of some issue, theme, or question about that week's readings, and everyone will post their responses here. Be sure to bookmark this page for ready reference! If you have any difficulty with posting, be sure you are logged on using a Google, Yahoo, or other online identity; there is online help available via the Blogger menu at any time. To be on the safe side, I recommend you compose your posts offline and cut and paste them to the blog; that way you can't lose any text. I look forward to lively discussions here on our blog, and hope you will find this site inviting and engaging!

In the meantime, does the scene depicted here seem familiar? The first person to name the poem and the poet, as well as the graphic novel it comes from -- no Googling! -- will win a prize of symbolic (but no monetary) value!
