Com L 114. The Modern Self and Its Discontents November 17, 2007, 2007 Written Response to Literature + Photography Rationa l : We are closing up the literature section of the course. One of the main differentiating features of the literary work is that, unlike philosophical texts, novels or poems do not necessarily have a sound logical argumentative structure; its aim is not to advance a theoretical point, but rather deploy a complex treatment of a subject matter relying more on an connotative (allusive indirect) narrative strategy than on clear-cut logical arguments. This way of treating a subject matter by connotation rather than denotation is proper of all art, not just of literature; this is why in this occasion we are working not only with written material, but also with visual arts. You will take this written response to reflect on the possible relations between visual arts and literature. Due date : Wednesday November 21st at 5pm, in the envelope at GS 358. I nstructions : Reread your responses and class notes on Proust, Rulfo, and Lispector. Go to any of the exhibitions at the Johnson Museum of Art (open 10 to 5, Tuesday through Sunday),

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
