Product Description
This assignment occurs after my students have finished reading section XII Jezebel’s. I teach the poem “Half-Hanged Mary” as an introduction to the novel, and give a mini-lecture about Atwood’s famous ancestor, Mary Webster. Information about her is available online, as is the poem in its entirety. This assignment assumes that students have read and analyzed “Half-Hanged Mary” already. The reading and analysis of the poem could certainly be done in conjunction with this assignment and need not be part of the introduction to the novel, if you prefer to move it. The poem is not included with the assignment. I use the Anchor Books/Random House 1998 edition for page numbers listed.
