    Week 27 Tennyson poem?

    The Week 27 Rhetoric Literature assignment says to read "Excerpts from In Memoriam" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, in the Shorter Works Anthology, but that poem is not in the Shorter Works Anthology. I tried searching the whole Anthology to see if it was misplaced but it's only mentioned in the introduction to Tennyson and in a quote introducing his poem Ulysses. I would be content to read it online but for the all-important "excerpts from"--it's a very long poem and I'm not sure what of it I'm supposed to read. There aren't any SAP questions directly on it, so I could skip it, but if it's a mistake in the curriculum I wanted to make sure the people in charge of those things knew about it. And if I'm somehow missing it I would be glad to know where it is and read it.

    Thanks,
    Rebecca

    P.S. I'm a Rhetoric student, not a parent.

    Hi Rebecca,
    The poem starts on p. 20 of the Tennyson section in Shorter Works.

    Could there be a problem with my version of the Shorter Works Anthology? Because the Tennyson section in my Digital Edition only has 19 pages.

    Hi,
    I'd encourage you to go to the Download Center and redownload the Anthology. It sounds like there may have been a glitch somewhere along the way. If that doesn't work, please let us know!

    Sorry that I'm just getting back with you. Were you ever able to access this section?

    Ms. C.,

    No--I ended up skipping it. There weren't any discussion questions on it, so I just focused on the other poems.
