First Class Together

I enjoyed meeting with you all this week. I am going to really enjoy the Term together: reading great books, learnilng information about their finer aspects and their authorial and social backgrounds in order to increase our future memory of them and their significance for us, and discussing their merits and importance.

With the holiday this coming Monday, the expectation is that you will have read Mrs. Dalloway and most, if not all, of Atonement (I mean, of course, 'for the second time'; for, as students of English, you will all have read the course texts before the Term began, are now reading them a second time as we address ourselves to them, and again a third time in preparation for the Term Paper....) That is correct, is it not?
