David Wilson sends in this report from his 18th-Century Novel class:
Here is the winning team for this year’s Humphry Clinker Cup competition in English 3365: The 18th-Century Novel: Sarah Vallis, Courtney MacFarlane, Ashley Muise, and Christina Kempster.
Four teams vied for the coveted cup filled with chocolate, not to mention bragging rights for the term.
The winning group showed their knowledge of the novel by correctly answering the most skill-testing questions. For example:
- Name the pleasure gardens in London that the characters visit and write about.
- When Lt. Lishmahago meets the travellers, what literary character does Jery use to describe the officer?
- What is the humourous name of the laxative that Aunt Tabitha uses on her dog Chowder?
Congratulations to these four students!
