True Adventures, Allegories, and Audience
For this journal, you need to respond, citing textual moments from all three authors’ texts, effectively and clearly to the prompt:
Each poem attempts to teach its audience by engaging that audience. What strategies does each author use? How does each author teach her/his audience to anticipate the lesson available? How does each author, working in a different genre of poetry (Marie’s “true adventures,” Langland’s allegory, and the Gawain poet’s combination of the two), create that impact?
As with all journals, I’m not interested in what I wrote in the lectures; I literally know that stuff. I’m interested in how you engage with those texts you read / watched and how you think about them.
