March 5, 2009 Listing
See SHU's production of Life is a Dream. The production runs February 27 to March 7.
If you can see "Life is a Dream" before Ex 5 is due, please use the SHU production (and the script) as your literary text (for either formalism or psychological criticism).
Otherwise, use the SHU production and the script as the literary text for Ex 6 (on intertextuality).
Length: Can be very brief. (A few sentences.)
Submit: Either post it on your blog, OR bring a printout.
Your project could be a traditional paper, a website, a creative work, or just about anything that demonstrates your ability to apply, in a focused, deliberate way, the skills you are developing in this course.
See examples of Lit-Crit projects from 2007.
There's a progress report due late in April, and the project itself is due on the last day of classes. (See the schedule as given on the Outline.)
I actively discourage groups of three, because in my experience they fall apart much too easily; nevertheless, I don't forbid them.

Read one of
Brann, ''Pictures in Poetry: Keats's 'Ode on a Grecian Urn''

Presenter: Derek (after the break)
