Hello folks! Your task today is the timed write. Please read the instructions below!
PROMPT: How do two texts and one work of art show Existentialism, Absurdism, or Surrealism.
BRING NOTES, PRINT YOUR ART, BRING IPODS, BRING PEN (no pink or red!), BRING LINED PAPER!
The Myth of Sisyphus, Albert Camus
The Stranger, Albert Camus
The Nose, Nikolai Gogol
The Metamorphosis, Franz Kafka
“What is Reality,” Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow
"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” (may be used as either a text, or a work of art)
“The Seventh Seal” – excerpt of playing chess with death Salvador Dali Francis Bacon Alberto Giacometti Anton Kiefer M. C. Escher Marcel Duchamp Robert Raushenberg Max Ernst Edvard Munch
Your CDs (concrete details, facts, evidence) will be paraphrase this time. You must first describe the thing before you can discuss it. What happened? What is in the picture? What colors are used? How are things presented? What is the action in the film? What do people do/say? How do they say it?
Your 1st paragraph will be the Thesis!
Then, indent and start your essay.
I recommend (remember, recommend actually means, "you should") connect the texts and art not only to the philosophy you have chosen, but also to the other texts. Use transitions. Make connections.
