This semester we have literature bloggers and ePortfolio creators across three years: in first year students studying “Introduction to Literary and Dramatic Forms”; in second year “The Nineteenth Century”; in third year “Shakespeare and the Renaissance”. What a feast! Welcome to this blogging site where you will be getting a running commentary on weekly lectures and the ideas and experiences that flow from those. This is the place also where you must come to get your weekly topics for your creative and critical blogs and your wiki discussions. There will shortly be links across the top of this page that will take you to your specific unit topics. But I suggest you always read the entry on this main page before going off to your own unit area. I hope that you find this e-writing component of your units personally satisfying, a way of becoming more personally involved with the literature you are studying and a way of sharing your thoughts and ideas with others in the group. Remember at all times when you are writing for the web that you are in a public space so your writing should be carefully edited before posting.
