Soppho Response

Soppho Fragment 31 Response

This fragment from Soppho is one of many that stood out, but I feel as though it’s the one I could relate and understand a little better than others. From what I understand, Soppho is describing an intimate conversation between a man and a woman and some of the side effects that can come from falling in love with someone so quickly. The way Soppho writes in this poem can relate to a majority of students here at this school when they are sitting at their desk at night, writing papers for classes that they feel “aren’t necessary for their practice”. Something that is so often talked about on breaks or on the weekends. An overwhelming feeling of emotion, stress, confidence, lust, and fatigue that comes with falling in love, or in a Liberal Arts student’s case, a thesis.

Class This Week Is Cancelled

A medical emergency has cancelled our class together this week. When we return from Spring Break I will attempt to cover some of the material we are missing but I don't want us to get behind so proceed with the syllabus in the usual way. When I last checked some of you had not yet handed in your mid-term papers. Send them to me as e-mail .docx attachments as soon as possible. Once I feel up to it I will be grading them all. Believe me when I tell you that I would not miss our class together for light reasons. I hope you all have a good break and catch up -- and we will get back together in a couple of weeks.
