What follows is a thumbnail sketch for the course.

I expect our reading pace to be—eventually—about 1 page of the Gould-Whiteley text per week.  Mondays and Wednesdays will be our principal reading and translating days, while Fridays will be devoted mainly to other issues.

N.B.:  Unless otherwise specified, you must do all readings before the classes for which they are assigned.
