Let's meet in City Hall Park at 6:30. If it starts to rain, we'll go to the nearest bar or something. If you can't find us, call me:[masked]-8104.
Tonight we'll be working with some very personal material that seems to be autobiographical. Let's remember to refer to the author as the "narrator." The narrator is, after all, a literary construct in the case of personal essays or memoirs and is not necessarily that person in the same way that we know them socially. This separation of narrator vs. person-sitting-with-us will enable us to have a better discussion about the literary merits of the piece.
See you later!
