Burnt Norton

Time present and time past

Are both perhaps present in time future

And time future contained in time past.

If all time is eternally present

All time is unredeemable.

What might have been is an abstraction

Remaining a perpetual possibility

Only in a world of speculation.

What might have been and what has been

Point to one end, which is always present.

Footfalls echo in the memory

Down the passage which we did not take

Towards the door we never opened

Into the rose-garden. My words echo

Thus, in your mind.

                                   But to what purpose

Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves

I do not know.

T.S. Eliot, from “The Four Quartets”

Start reading As I Lay Dying [AILD]

As I Lay Dying is a challenging work, if you only read it once. But it is short and a relatively quick read. Therefore, I recommend reading it twice…once before the first reading is due…and then slower, with the reading schedule. Though this is not required, it is highly suggested. The first reading is not due until 9/16-9/17.

You can read it now, even if you haven’t yet received your hard copy (I’m looking at you period 8), by using the link on the course specific page. Reading schedule has been posted as well.
