Diagnostics, Lovecraft and a Sermon

dscn3849-small.JPG

This weekend I read the diagnostics for ENG101, the first four chapters of H.P. Lovecraft’s Novella “Horror at Redhook” and chapters 3, 4 and 5 of Invisible Man.

1. The students in the cluster are all good writers with interesting things to say.

2. Lovecraft is a freak. I love the creepy stories and “Horror” is even more racist and xenophobic than I remember (though it confirms some of my prejudices about Brooklyn).

3. Keeping up with Invisible Man is proving to be a bit more work than I anticipated. I will now have to go and read some other secondary sources, because I am unable to unpack the events in the novel as well as I’d like. It is so brilliantly written, however (though I think that chapter 5, while beautiful, is excessive).

  1. Most excellent! This is what “the other” is.
