I know that you are all busy this summer with travelling, summer courses or something else but I would like to suggest a few works for you to analyze. It is your choice to take them or leave them. Rolling Eyes

I have 3 works for you: a long poem, a short play and a movie. I would really like you to choose one of them to analyze here in the forum.

1- The poem: "Rizpah" by Lord, Alfred Tennyson.

http://everything2.com/title/Rizpah

2- The play: The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams.

I strongly recommend you read and analyze this work. It is short, a page-turner, entertaining and most importantly full of SYMBOLS > my favourite literary device I love you . Also, this semester you only studied Greek and Elizabethan plays but in level 5 and 6 you will study modern plays, so this will give you a head start.

3- The movie: Avatar.

The reason i chose this movie is that it is also SYMBOLIC, and it sends out messages about the importance of religion, the loss of spirituality in the Western world, imperialism, and the list goes on. No one will really appreciate this movie until they understand its symbolic meaning.

Now, as I said you don't have to choose any of these works if you're too busy. However, if you do, I hope you could all agree upon one work, read or watch it, and then come back here to discuss it. Wink

PS: If you have friends in other classes who are interested in literature and analyzing, they are more than welcome to join us.

Even if I was busy , nothing can stop me from analyzing afro and besides I don't think I have too much in my mind this summer Cool . If I can have time for playing , watching cartoons and go visit people for sure there's gonna be time for reading .

good evening Like a Star @ heaven

my vote goes to watch the movie because its symbols are very clear

and they extremely affect the Viewer.

even I think it's pretty long 2:34 minute, I am still excited to watch the whole movie, it is worth watching Cool

thank you teacher for your suggestions Smile
