We wrote the Satire Assignment in class today:
- a one page mock epic
- a 500 word “modest proposal”
- a 500 word allegory, in the vein of Gulliver’s Travels
OR you may write an essay on the satire of the Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift in terms of their targets of satire and the literary / humour techniques they employ.
I’ve come down with the flu, so we will have to postpone the Burns Day Celebration to Monday. You will need your text book for what is planned instead.
Please pick a quatrain from a Robert Burns poem to read on Monday..
If you haven’t posted your JOHNSON style dictionary definition yet, please do so.
