This week's teaching

In my drama course, it's Etherege's The Man of Mode, or Sir Fopling Flutter (a ridiculously good subtitle for a play). In my graduate seminar, it's Robinson Crusoe and various criticism, including an excerpt from Robert Young's book Colonial Desire.

Extras for this week: a seminar for high-school teachers on Sheridan's The Rivals, to prepare them for an upcoming production at Lincoln Center Theater. A talk at Yale on Thursday: the first time I'm trying out the "Shibboleths: Breeding and the Elocutionists" piece. And on Friday morning, a talk on Jane Austen to parents of Columbia first-year students.

My review of Secrets of the Soul: A Social and Cultural History of Psychoanalysis and The Invisible Century: Einstein, Freud and the Search for Hidden Universes is due tomorrow as well.

Must get some sleep...
