As I said in my post I really do not dislike her and she is a nice person, she just grades, very hard and very stritcly. She ripped on the whole class and was like everyone had problems on thier papers and pointed out all these things that we all did wrong.
I am currently working on the second paper we have for the class so I am just going to try to make this paper kick ***
There is always one teacher that we just can't seem to do well. There was a teacher for 19th century novel that was just horrible. He was not a good teacher at all. Still i didn't think I would do bad on his tests, but no matter what I submitted I got a C, and I had almost all As in literature. He was just a schmuck and I have never hated a teacher before, but I hated him. As it turned out I wasn't the only one that had a problem with him.
I take it the class has not ended yet, Muse. So why don't you sit with the teacher and see what you have to improve on and what you need to do to climb to a B. Once you're your situation, it's best to work closer with the teacher, if you get along with her that is.
Consideirng I always get A's and B's from other teachers, then it is her problem not mine.
Get a second opinion.
Thank you, though I think I acutally have that one in one of my anthologies I just have to get around to reading it
If you'd like to read Tennyson's Morte D'Arthur, it's posted on the "Poem of the Week" thread and on my blog. Sir Bedivere goes through the offices of king, vassal and slave.
I happen to prefer Malory's Le Morte to Tennyson's Idylls.
Tennyson wrote Morte D'Arthur in 1842 and it was much shorter than Mallory's book. It was only 272 lines. It's exvlusively about King Arthur's death.
I have that book, haven't read it yet though. Personally I love the Mary Stewart Arthruian books
Tennyson wrote Idylls of the King. Mallory wrote Le Morte D'Arthur. Mallory was a little tought to push through at times. I like T H White's The Once and Future King. Been years, but it's my favorite take on the legend.
I have not read Morte D'Arthur yet but I would like to
Very interesting. It took Alfred, Lord Tennyson 272 lines to write that much in Morte D'Arthur.. If you read Morte D'Arthur first and then come across the lines by Yeats, it makes you think all the more.
Maybe all the trappings are a bit much, but it's nice having a day set aside to express your love. My Valentine is gone now and I just spent the day thinking about him and all of our good times together. It was nice not feeling guilty about having him on my mind.
I love the heart one, I do have a gripe with the way hearts came to be portrayed as they cutsy little figures that look nothing like a real heart at all.
Thanks for posting that, Virgil. That just made my day.
This reminds me of a scrooge for Valentine's Day. For that you should get some anti-Valentines:
Want to go skeet shooting.
(I'm only kidding by the way. )
Loved this entry. My sentiments exactly regarding the card thing.
Hehe yes I think it could be quite nice. There is this great little place here, that is family run with home-cooked food, that is really good. So I would totally order some food from them and then go off to have a picnic somewhere.
brilliant!!! Jellyfish is one of my favorite creatures. Thanks for sharing.
A picnic with Chinese take-out?!
How delightful would that be!
