Course Description

Readings of The Canterbury Tales with as much attention to the language and background of the literature as is possible. For the first few weeks, emphasis falls on language. For the rest of the semester, emphasis on backgrounds of the literature. Please keep ahead of me. I'll be going slowly.

Grading Policy

Class attendance (33%), language quizzes (33%), final exam or paper (33%): you must have an "A" in all three areas to receive an A. Do not miss more than two classes.
