As an extended study of style, you will be reading an author of your choice extensively. This work will span the rest of the term and will result in a presentation of sorts in January. This is all I will tell you about the project at this time. For now, your task is to find an author whose work you wish to study in-depth. This author must be established/published, but can work in any genre. Here are some suggestions (you may propose another author to study but I get to say no for any number of reasons):


Sign-up is first ask, first get on Friday in class. Have a few options.
If you “don’t get” poetry, don’t pick a poet. And then sign up for poetry class because, seriously. 
Then secure copies of this author’s work for to read and study
