At a couple of points in the term, you’ll do an oral interview with me. These interviews will give you a chance to show how you think (and speak) on your feet.
The first interview will take place in the week of October 25. It will last about fifteen minutes. In this interview, we’ll talk about a couple of passages—one of your choice and one of mine. Your job will be to relate these passages to larger themes from the course.
The second interview will take place during finals week. It will last about twenty minutes. For this interview, you’ll be asked to bring in passages from two novels and use those passages to make an argument about the history of the novel form.
