I don't remember if I mentioned it or not, but I had to drop my creative writing class this semester and register for something that better fit my schedule. I ended up in a British Literature to 1800: Medieval Women and Literature course. While there's a teeny, tiny part of me that is excited to learn more about this particular era, there's a much larger part of me that is freaking out over the amount of reading I'm going have to do over the next fourteen weeks.
To start with I had to purchase nine books.
As you can see, there's some variety here. We have fiction, non-fiction, theory, and history.
Our first week has started out with The Trotula: An English Translation of the Medieval Compendium of Women's Medicine, a chapter from The Judith Butler Reader, and a scholarly article in PDF form. Since I was not technically enrolled until Tuesday, I had very little time to get this reading done before our first class session, which meets tonight.
I'm hoping my speed reading serves me well.
