Hi all,

I am teaching a linguistic-analysis-of-literature class next quarter
(starting April '03) and am thinking of centering it either completely
on metaphor/conceptual blending or on that and schema/frame theory. I
was wondering if anyone on these lists had taught such a course and had
recommendations or ideas to share for readings, activities, pieces to
analyze, etc.

My students are not linguistics majors (far from it), so the material
has to be _extremely accessible_ to non-linguists. Most will be English
majors. I know about _More than cool reason_ and _Metaphors we live by_,
so I am looking for other sources that I could add to these.

Thanks in advance. If people want me to, I will share responses with the lists.
