I'm a linguist and I teach English as a second language (ESL) to a class of Chinese immigrant students. Anyway, I assigned Reading Gaol
this past week to the class because the students wanted something different from the regular textbook.
My expertise, however, is in the science of linguistics, not English literature, and I need to assign some kind of comprehension and analysis questions on the poem. Are there any English lit. types who might be willing to offer some suggestions for critical analysis questions on The Ballad of Reading Gaol
