4 March 2009

Today we’ll talk about “The Student, the Fish and Agassiz” as a metaphor for reading and make a list of the habits and skills such a metaphor asks of us.

Then we’ll look at a whole slew of terms–I’ll put them up on the board. You will take turns erasing and explaining them until we’re left with the ones that none of us know. We’ll talk about those tomorrow.

UPDATE: “Those” are anaphora, antithesis, caesura, conceit, enjambment, in medias res, meter, refrain and tone.
