Hey, can someone read Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein and compare and contrast it to the Dancing Homer episode of the Simpsons?
Write a brief paper on Frankenstein, as little words as necessary but use all the words you need, starting with your gut response then work into deconstructions, then work it against the foil of the Simpsons.
Bring in the issues of societal mores and alienation, with sub-texts of dark ambitions and perceptions. Get someone to proofread it for you, then email it to me by October 17.
As you are doing this, keep detailed notes on the event of each chapter, so a detailed summary is more or less given of the entire book. Email me each chapter’s notes as you finish them.
Thank you kindly in advance, and thank you, d12, for setting precedent.
What an…interesting…assignment. Unfortunately, I’ll have to skip it–I’m not much on Mary Queen of Luddites. Or on the Simpsons, for that matter (I’ve been roundly denounced as the very epitome of evil for that in another thread already).
Of course, neither of those things would stop me from providing a paper as clear and accurate as the answers provided for D12.
“Walk this way.
…no, no, this way.”
[and so, performing the 432nd parody of that very simple statement, Feldman hands Wilder the impossibly short cane for stepping awkwardly down the short flight of steps]
