A Literary Edu-ma-cation

They say that education is wasted on the young.  While A Reader's Respite gladly leaves freshman calculus to the young, we do miss literature classes.  But did you know that a number of universities offer free lit courses online for anyone to partake?

Here's a few of our favorites....

LitLovers offers short (30 minute) courses on how to read literature....everything from plots to characters to setting.  There are ten courses to choose from, each of them fun, easy and no-pressure.

For the brave and bold amongst you, Columbia University offers a free 2-hour seminar on James Joyce's Ulysses, exploring and explaining the use of different narratives in this most frustrating of novels.

MIT has several open courses free for the taking....

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
