Today I started the discussion about Bowling for Columbine that we watched last week in my two morning classes. My freshmen are sharp cookies, understanding when Moore is using the same propaganda that he accuses others of using. I have them looking at it as a rhetorical situation, argument, audience, blind spots, context. What's his thesis. It has generated a lot of response. They agree with him, but are wary of his heavy handedness.
He'll be here tonight, I'm excited. He's super funny.
Had my Renaissance poetics class after teaching. Wrote a really crappy two page paper for it. We discussed Countryhouse poetry (johnson and Lanyer). A good area of study is works that depend on specific instances of architecture. E.g: Drawing Room Comedies, Parlor Fiction, etc. Maybe BAchelard's Poetics of Space would be a good place to start.
Going to go home and sleep until the fat man comes.
