Blog Carnival - Cover Blog Entry


A unified vote was accomplished, on February 19, and many class members have decided on a topic.

The chosen story is from Dubliners, "The Dead." (Irish literature)

I, Derek Tickle, will be the initial host for this blog carnival.

As we approach the climax of this carnival, I will turn over the host rights to Greta. She will provide a summation paragraph on this blog entry about what criticism we have concluded for "The Dead."

The Host has made a post!
