Comment:

60 minutes; for the students who were in my english 494 class. instead of taking the gre literature exam to be admitted to graduate school, students at my university who are english majors have to take english 494. the purpose of the class is to read a giant list of novels and poetry (british and american) and selected readings based on each person's "track": creative writing, literature, or rhetoric and criticism. sometime during our first year, we schedule a one-hour oral examination and are assigned two professors in the department at random with whom we have a test under the guise of an "intellectual conversation" about the reading list. for fun, i decided to compile songs that correspond to the novels or short stories we have to read and this was the result. next up on my list might be one of author's names, or perhaps references to the poetry we were assigned, although those mixes will be - admittedly - much harder to put together.
