Though these were undergraduates, the main problem was also not that the students lacked the requisite sophistication.
As juniors, they would have been exposed to challenging literary texts from their first year onwards though not James , while taking at least one course in literary theory a year. Moreover, they would be poised to start work on their senior thesis, a demanding 30,word research paper.
With the other texts, I wanted to lead up to the specific conclusions of my research. I had no more than two one-hour sessions in which to achieve all this, and I had yet to establish what the conventional reading is.
I am not proud of the kinds of questions this led me to resort to.
With hindsight, it seems obvious that broader, more overarching questions are more likely to stimulate active thinking on the part of the students. What was the relationship between Daisy and Giovanelli like? How did Winterbourne regard Daisy? How did she regard him? When I broached these questions in class, more than a dozen students contributed to what turned into a real discussion, which is unusual for relatively shy Flemish students surrounded by 85 of their peers.
I did not stick to the order of the questions as I had given them to the students, instead adopting a sequence that more closely corresponds with the experience of reading the story. I also made considerable use of additional questions to guide the students in the right direction.
What is his nationality? Again, this is left implicit, but his aunt, Mrs Costello, certainly seems to consider herself a member of the first circles. We then examined Daisy Miller herself, seeing of course that she is more clearly an American, perhaps even the archetypal American girl? Following Dupee, I broached those negatively first.
Daisy Miller is not from New York City: We were now better prepared to address the question of how Winterbourne regards Daisy.
A good additional question here, I think, is: Why does Winterbourne want to present Daisy to his aunt Mrs. Costello before they go out together?
It is a question that enables students to go to the heart of one crucial problem that this text presents: Are the rules the same in Geneva, New York and Schenectady? Are they the same in one decade or another? Back then and right now? You will be sure to make some great mistake. A romance for both people who love romance, and those who do not.
