Since the beginning of the term, this is what I have produced:
- History in Tony Kushner's Angels in America: Millenium Approaches, or the quest for a sexual or a historical identity ;
- A reflection on the development of the Northumbrian dialect between the 8th and the 12th century ;
- Bartleby the Scrivener: an evocation of the Statue of Liberty ;
- A detailed analysis of Ronsard's 9th Sonnet to Hélène, or the protrayal of a love duel ;
- Béroul's Tristan & Isolde, the symbolism of the Mal Pas, or the farce which allows to reintegrate the social space.
I also have the following assignments to produce over the coming weeks:
- A lexicographic analysis of three semantically related words ;
- Madness and marriage in Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway and Charlotte Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper ;
- A study of the mutual influences of the French and English languages one on another.
There is one more larger essay for which I need to pick my topic, but it isn't due for a bit, so I do have time to decide.Ah, woe is me. I do enjoy what I'm doing, though. I'll post excerpts when I can get to editing the raw bits.
Even if so far, I'm doing extremely well with my work.
My guest map is wonderful ! And you'd all be wonderful to post, all of you lurk mode readers!
Thanks and may the winds of Fate blow your way !
