Welcome to The Literature Stoodle!This Blog has been set up to help you become effective independent learners... and to enjoy the art of blogging. You need to set up your own Blogs to record notes, upload documents, images, videos, music, presentations whatever you like to record and analyse your wider reading. Think of it as a multi-media reading diary. WooHoo!I will upload reading material, videos of lectures to support your wider reading as well as advice from the exam board and help with coursework. I've put a link to amazon with suggestions for wider reading to the right. You can choose anything you like to read provided the subject is 'Love'.

A portrait of Absolom

In Friday's lesson we looked at the portrait of Absolom. Translate this section using your notes and have a look at the key quotations here. Chaucer mocks this character who has strong aspirations to be a courtly lover himself. Chaucer also invites us to compare him with Nicholas. They are both suitors for Alison's affections... which we know she gives freely. But who do you think she will favour?
