Transcript of Welcome to Lit 12

Welcome to Lit 12 Hi Lit 12
I’m sorry I can’t be with you for our first class but I’m in the city that we dare not name.
Not if you’re a true Vancouverite anyway… To welcome you, I thought I’d leave you this brief intro to me and the course.
I’m sure you all know me or at least have seen me in the halls.
No—that’s what I look like in my imagination.
In reality, I’m short, dark and middle-aged. But not that hairy. In this class, I hope to laugh every day and have wonderful conversations with you about literature. We’ll read the classics of British literature. Don’t feel that you have to agree with me to get a good mark. Just be prepared to argue for what you believe in and support that argument. Yes, I’ve seen the class list so I know we will be arguing...
And it’s not just Jonny and Iqbal I’m talking about. But I also know that you are an interesting and intelligent group of students. Welcome to all of you. I look forward to a fascinating year as we journey through the British literary canon.
