I’m grading. Most of the papers aren’t too bad. Students had a choice of three different passages to analyze. Two of the passages account for 95% of the papers. The third, which I thought was the most interesting, and so was really looking forward to reading papers on it, was deeply misunderstood by the 5% of students who addressed it. Deeply. We’re dealing with another work entirely, but the misunderstandings are along the lines of thinking that John is the guy who misdirects a kiss in the MT, and that he did so in hopes of pleasing his young wife, and succeeded.

Te-hee. Not.

Extra credit: write that version of the MT.
