Contemporary Literature

Your next big assignment will be due on the Thursday of the week after Spring Break.

The assignment, as we've been discussing in class, will deal in some way with one of our literary figures and tackle it through ekphrasis (which, for our purposes, will be the idea that art inspires art or literature inspires art.)

Consider Auden's Musee de Beaux Arts and how it began with a myth (Icarus) which set off a painting that was written about by Auden in the poem.
