|Pamela Writing (Joseph Highmore, 1745, Wikigallery)|
We won't have class on Thursday (l'shanah tovah!), but those of you not celebrating the holiday can use the time to get a head start on the Rare Book Library assignment, which I'll be posting shortly.
Just a reminder: as with Fantomina, I will not be permitting you to read the text from an electronic doo-dad in class, so please make a print-out of Shamela and bring it with you. It runs about 30 pages, so you'll need to budget your toner/paper accordingly. Depending on what you pay for ink cartridges, you might find it more cost-effective to print it out on a library printer. Also, as with Robinson Crusoe, take a moment before you start the novel to glance over the glossary that the C21 editor (Jack Lynch) has supplied at the back of the text.
