WEEKS EIGHT AND NINE

Now that we've wrapped up "The Crucible," we'll be moving on to some more writers of the contemporary period (1945 to the present). For Tuesday, November 6, you should read James Baldwin's "Sonny's Blues" (2194-2215). While this story isn't necessarily dificult to read, it is "dense" -- take your time with it.

Also, we'll be hearing from Group 8 on Thursday, November 8, when we talk about some "war-related" stories and poems.

Finally, your Mid-Term Paper is due Tuesday, November 6!
