Tompkins, Jane P.
Adult Nonfiction 921 T595
Summary: Tompkins (English, Duke U.) articulates what non-academics (and perhaps academics as well) often feel too intimidated to express: What in the world do these studies have to do with my life? Her "education memoir" follows the path of a scholar from her earliest school days through graduate school and professional success. As she awakens to the disparity between her self-discovery and her education, she begins to open the doors of her classroom as well, ultimately suggesting to all teachers that the study of poetry must not be separated from the experience of it in life. Lacks an index and bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
