Middle Zukofsky/Scroggins Visit Assignment

Read for next week's class:

L/Z Selected Poems
pp. 22-73, focusing on Anew 12, 20, 21, 22 and 4 Other Countries
pp. 90-116, ("A" 9-16) - focus on 9, 11, 12, but also read 15/16

A reminder, the schedule for next week is different. We have a lecture at 3:40 in LA 208, then a break before reconvening at Papa Joe's, 6 p.m.

Definitely focus on the poetry so we can take advantage of Scroggins' expertise.
