Buyer's Remorse

October 24, 2007

As a newly minted English Lit student, i have come to the painful realisation that i have bitten off more than i could chew. The sheer volume of the syllabus for a English Masters is frightening. I am not good at reading poetry and the curriculum contains a great deal of poetry. The last time i even thought about explain with reference to context was 9 years ago. And now i face whole papers full of them. Suddenly i wish i had gone the way of a Tamil MA instead of the english one ;-)

The first poems i am attempting to read are Milton's paradise lost book ix and Poe's The Raven. Wish me good luck dear constant reader, for i am in trouble of my own making.
