Opener: Read the chapter on violence from How to Read Literature Like a Professor. (Posted in Schoology)
- Compose responses to an essay question over A Streetcar Named Desire and In the Lake of the Woods. This is not the summative--it's just practice so I can get feedback to you before we write for real next week.
- "In great literature, no scene of violence exists for its own sake. In the Lake of the Woods and A Streetcar Named Desire confront the reader or audience with a scene or scenes of violence. In a well-organized essay, explain how the scene or scenes contribute to the meaning of the complete work. Avoid plot summary."
- Draft your response in class, take it home and polish it to post on turnitin.com by midnight on Saturday.
- When finished writing, you may work on "30 seconds of Streetcar" analysis.
HW: Enjoy your weekend. Review In the Lake of the Woods and be ready to cruise on discussions next week when life and weather return to normal. :)
