TBR for Fall
I know that I’m not the only one in the book community who loves Fall, there is just something about this season that makes me want to curl up with a good book. This Fall my goal is to stay on top of all my school readings. To that end, my Fall TBR pile is made up of all the books that are listed on my syllabuses.
My Arthurian Literature class has a lot of readings, quite frankly too many to list. Now many of them are excerpts from larger and longer texts and in middle and old English. So I’m just going to give a brief overview of the most recognizable ones and the main book I have to read for the class this fall.
Le Morte D’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory
This is the focal/ main text for the majority of this course and I’m so excited to read it.
Other texts that I have to read for this semester of this course include:
- Geoffrey of Monmouth
- The Arthurian portion of Historia Regum Britanniae
- William of Malmesbury
- Excerpts from Chronicles of the Kings of England
- Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
- Sir Gawain: Eleven Romances and Tales
Psychoanalysis and Approaches to Literature
I can tell already you that this course is going to be a doozy. There is a couple of text that I have to read this semester and none of them are light or easy, all of them seem to be classics.
Contemporary Canadian Writers
So far this course is a deeper exploration of how we define Canadian Literature through an exploration of Contemporary Canadian Writers. The readings are very interesting and I can’t wait to discuss them on the blog and in reviews.
