And She’s Got a Ph.D. in English?

This is friends-only sim­ply in case the pro­fes­sor ever fol­lows the link in my .sig here. I doubt it, but anyway…

Remem­ber me say­ing that I’m less than impressed with this professor?

This is copied direct­ly from the class site:

Dis­cus­sion Questions

(select 2)

1. Con­sid­er the ways in which gods and mor­tals inter­act using the following:
Gil­gamesh and Lugulbanda
Gil­gamesh and Ishtar
Gil­gamesh and Ninsun
Post your response in the ‘Unit 3 Gil­gamesh #1.’

2. The role of women in Gil­gamesh or rather the process of civ­i­liz­ing Enkidu. Do you see any sim­i­lar­i­ties between Eve and the har­lot in Gil­gamesh? Post your response in the ‘Unit 3 Gil­gamesh #2.’

3. The tragedy of mor­tal­i­ty — the tragedy gains poignance by the absence ?? of a well devel­oped sys­tem of belief in after­life. Post your response in the ‘Unit 3 Gil­gamesh #3.’

4. The con­cept of the city — Uruk- in terms of splen­dor and grandeur. How does it con­trast with the mod­ern view of the city? Post your response in the ‘Unit 3 Gil­gamesh #4.’

5. Explore the myth­i­cal ele­ments in Gil­gamesh — episodes pre­sent­ed as a means of inter­pret­ing nat­ur­al events — abun­dant inter­ac­tion of super­nat­ur­al ele­ments with mankind — and less con­cern with moral didac­ti­cism are prob­a­bly some leads for you to con­sid­er. Post your response in the ‘Unit 3 Gil­gamesh #5.’


I find it absolute­ly painful to read this wom­an’s words. Appar­ent­ly “proof­read­ing” and “spell check­ing” are for­eign con­cepts. I dread the mid-term, as the quiz ques­tions often make no sense at all.
