So summer is here, and I’m guessing we’re about to find out who blogs for the points, and who blogs for the sheer joy of blogging.
[A chorus of little voices says “oh, I’ll keep blogging, Mr. Locke!]
I hope so, but I’ve heard well-intentioned promises before. Perhaps it will be for the best, though. Blogging is really most likely to benefit those who do it voluntarily.
Speaking of summer, Mrs. Grimes has selected T.H. White’s Once and Future King as summer reading for students enrolled in English II Pre-AP. Since I’ve done so with your novels all year long, I thought about picking up a few copies at B&N or Half-Price book store, and making them available at my educator’s discount rate. Let me know if you’re interested.
Grendel Conferences–If you couldn’t tell from the last post, I’m really interested 1)in talking about Gardner’s Beowulf as a Christ-type. If you want something to talk about in your conference that could be interesting for both of us, read and tell me if you see what I’m seeing. I’m also really interested in 2)the character of Hrothulf, and his relationship with Red Horse, OR 3)the fourth priest in the chapter about the priests. There–free tips for bloggers. You know you’re special…
