Clock ticks me

I finally got to my first American Literature tutorial, with Ms. Miriam Hasselmann, a small American with a pretty fierce reputation, the sort of ‘you’ll-love-her-or-hate-her’ type. I quite liked her. The other three in my tutorial compared a Melville novel to something by Poe: I sat smiling and nodding inanely.

So, eager to create a better impression, I volunteered to present next week’s tutorial, comparing Emerson’s “Nature” & “The Poet” with Wordsworth’s 1802 Introduction to Lyrical Ballads.
