British Literature Lessons/Handouts

 "And when I am forgotten, as I shall be, and asleep in dull cold marble, where no mention of me must be hear of, say, I taught thee."            Shakespeare, Henry VIII

A NOTE on Lessons: The plan now is to make these Main Lesson Pages a jumping off point - each lesson will have it's own link.  If you are a Registered User,you will, in addition to the handouts and descriptions, be able to hear audio of the lessons being used, and in some cases video as well - though this feature is far down the line in terms of imlementation.  In any case, handouts and their descriptors will be public.
