HBO’s Best of the Friends’ Blogs — 3/24/08

Chris Peterson/Glacier Magazine calls this photo simply: Heave Ho.

When I assign my students Japanese and Chinese poetry of the early centuries A.D., I always wonder how it will go. For starters, many students find poetry difficult and I always wonder if this ancient poetry will just seem too remote. A majority of my students loved it. Honestly, when my Survey of World Literature students love this poetry it’s among the most gratifying experiences I have as an instructor. I find this poetry wise, elegant, witty, irreverent (at times), and philosophically satisfying and when other students do, too, I enjoy feeling the bond of enjoyment/Raymond Pert, Kellogg Bloggin.
