Final Exam Preparation

I know that you are all doing diligent study for the Final exam Tuesday morning. There's the fine-grained detail and the major Course themes, naturally. Your lecture notes, notes on the texts, and of course this blog are your effective resources. However, I want to encourage you to keep in mind as you prepare the motto I repeated through the Course, that fiction indeed instructs, but instructs by delighting.
Let your study time for our Course, be guided by your aesthetic response to the literature: keep your love of any of the particular works topmost in your mind, and you won't go far wrong on the Exam.

Sincere best wishes.

are the major course themes time & eternity, and religion? am i missing anything important?

Dr. Stephen Ogden said...

Yes, your lecture notes and the blog will give you the scope of answer required for these on the Final. Classfellows might also post discussions here.
