Sometimes a Great Student

One of my students was so brilliant today; we were discussing "The Prioress's Tale," and he talked about how he'd hated it (but not in a "so I didn't bother to read it" but in a smart, engaged way), and when we got to the latrine description, he said that that's where he'd basically slammed the book shut and been done with it until later.

It was just great, you know?  I love when students have a strong, engaged reaction, and how can you have that reaction to "The Prioress's Tale" without wanting to slam the book shut at several points?
