A grab bag of questions as you wend your way through Evelina's adventures in Volume II for Thursday--just specify which question you're answering.
1. The C18 British Novel: 88 lines about 44 women*?
Or as a classmate put it in a response to Tuesday's attendance question: "I would like to discuss the obsession with innocence, artlessness, and beauty." From another response: "Why are all the women in this time so bashful and hesitant?"
2. Humor! As one person wrote, "Is this novel supposed to be as funny as I am finding it?" Or to put it another way, "Considering the humor, are readers still supposed to find some sort of moral lesson?"
3. And finally, from another response: "I think it's important to question whether of not Evelina actually has any agency." Well, does she?
*The Nails did put out their own video for this song, but I find its use of ethnographic footage troubling without being illuminating, so you get the Kimpossible fanvid instead.
