Today, the eve of Halloween, we will honor Edgar Allen Poe.

We will read the “The Tell Tale Heart” aloud in class.

Students will read “The Black Cat” & “The Pit & the Pendulum”  next week.

UPDATE: We’ve taken 2- 50 point split-quote quizzes over the first two stories.  If students come to class prepared with 5 split-quotes from “The Pit & The Pendulum” on Monday 11/09, we can go straight to seminar.  If students do not have quotes on Monday, we will take another (boring) quiz instead.
