EL312: I don't think my brain hibernates: a portfolio

Ahh, spring has sprung... only to be covered with snow again (or at least from where I'm sitting). Working through literary criticism, though, is much like the weather lately--sometimes I'm spot-on and feel brilliant like the sun on those beautiful days and other days, well, I feel like my brain has perhaps frozen to avoid absorbing any passenger information to carry along with it into another state of hibernation.

Or at least that's what it feels like.

Maybe writing this portfolio will make me feel better about my understanding of the stuff we've covered in this second chunk of the course... You know where to click to see the whole thing...
