Due January 20

Read “In Westminster Abbey,” by John Betjamin. The poem begins on page 518 of your blue books. As you read, consider what we learn about the person who is talking.

Make at least ten observations that connect with the person talking, and write each down on a sheet of paper or a copy of the poem, as full sentences if possible. Along with each observation, include a note as to the line or lines in the poem that relate to that observation. For example:

  • Observation: The speaker has come into church a little late, right as the service is starting.
  • Backup: I know this because the “vox humana,” which is Latin for human voices and refers to the singing, is already going on when the person is taking off their gloves.

Bring your blue books to class.
