Subject: Re: From MOOC student Scott Lord :Nice to Meet You in Harvard Square
Please call me Philip. What a wonderful thing it was to run into you last
night, and amazing that you should recognise me. I¹m very glad you said
hello. And I¹m very pleased that a MOOC should bring people together like
that! Shows what education can do!
Yes, I know Anne Bradstreet through John Berryman¹s poetry, which I used
to study. And went back and read her work. The Day of Doom I think is a
very long poem isn¹t it, but I¹ve read some stanzas from it. Michael
Wigglesworth was the father and grandfather of the two Edward
Wigglesworths I think.
All the best Scott, and with your adventures in on-line education. I feel
as though I¹m learning from you, rather than the other way round!
Dear Professor Mead,It was nice to meet you in Harvard Square tonight and I appreciate yourallowing me to thank you for your MOOC. Good luck at Harvard and pleaseremember to look into the history of Colonial Literature, particularlythe poetess Anne Bradstreet, and Michael Wigglesworth, who wrote the Dayof Doom religious poems. Clearly, there is a historical division betweenAmerican poetry of the Puritan and that of the American Revolution.Again, I apologize for abruptly calling you over, but it was a completesurprise that you were here.Your online Student,Australian Literature from Cousera,Scott LordCambridge, Massachusetts.Ps. Currently I am in the Coursera class on Art from Melbourne, which isgoing well.Sent from my iPad
