What one frame do you think Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis would not be the same without? What would this frame look like in a different medium?
Working in small groups, create a snapchat post combining text, images, and/or video that interprets at least one frame from Persepolis.
You can make a new account for today’s exercise.
When you are finished, share your post with the instructor.
Woolf Online: Time Passes
In Class: September 27, 2017
Today we will investigate Woolf's composition of the "Time Passes" section of To The Lighthouse using Woolf Online. How does the appearance of Woolf's drafts alter your sense of their contents?
Working in pairs, select at least one quotation in the novel to consider in draft and in the final version. How do they differ? What do their differences teach us about Woolf's creative process? How does Woolf revise the portion you selected or this section of the novel in general?
You might consider selecting a quotation or moment related to the theme, word, or topic you are tracing through the novel. Collect your notes in a Google Doc and we will share our responses.
Leslie Stephen's Photograph Album
Virginia Woolf had her father’s photograph album with her while writing To the Lighthouse. This photograph album, now housed at Smith College, has been digitized and is available here. These images may have inspired Woolf's artistic choices. But elements of the creative process are also unknown to the author and readers can draw connections that only they can see.
Working in pairs, analyze one photograph alongside a quotation from To the Lighthouse. How does the image shed light on passage you have selected and vice versa? You will share your findings with the class.
For further exploration, check out Jane de Gay's consideration of Leslie Stephen's Photograph Album in her book Virginia Woolf's Novels and the Literary Past.
