Actually, Jackie, I audited Maria Tatar's class on fairytales (I think it 
was called "Fairytales and the Art of Childhood") when I was a visiting 
student at Harvard, and I thought *HER* syllabus was missing some obvious 
(to me) children's authors. I found her discussion on Anne Sexton to be 
fascinating, and I enjoyed great parts of the class, but at some point 
starting losing interest because I was so frustrated by where the discussion 
wasn't going - so many fun areas to explore that weren't being explored. 
Though I will admit part of my frustration stemmed from the fact that I was 
fighting an urge to monopolize all the discussions, when in fact all 
auditors had been politely requested not to participate in discussions as 
there were too many students enrolled in the class anyway.... Anyway, I've 
just tried looking for the syllabus to that class in my papers, but couldn't 
find it. I'm sure I have it somewhere, I never throw anything away, but it's 
probably filed in the entirely wrong place...
