    • I agree that your casting of Iron Man in the Blake role worked perfectly. You effectively played off of his arrogance and, at times, over confidence. I thought that your performance was great; your accent was well done, and you did a good job of portraying the Wakanda mannerisms. Glad you enjoyed this project. Thanks for a good semester. Hang in their during finals weeks.

    The newest chapter of Glen Garry Glen Ross was soooo choppt. The fact that Moss or Aaronow might’ve comitted the robbery is crazy. I don’t really know who might’ve done it but man it was type crazy how it really […]

    • Good observation about the lack of loyalty in the office. Arguably, that’s what happens when people are placed in competition with one another. There is no incentive to look out for anyone but oneself. Also, good analysis of Levene’s character shift. Once he makes that sale, he does seem like a totally different, and utterly unsympathetic, character.

  • This weeks stories were all really entertaining and were a nice contrast to last weeks. I enjoyed especially how the Native American boy was able to beat up his school bully. It reminded me of something I did when […]

    • I hope that our discussion about “Never Marry a Mexican” will help to clarify a bit about Clemencia and her intersectional experience of identity. I would argue that race and ethnicity are very important to understanding her motivations; we’ll see if I can convince you of that. 🙂

    • These stories are very sad. The subject matter can make them difficult to get through. Even though people of color were no longer slaves at this point in American history, they certainly were not free in any way that we would define it. I hope that our conversation in class today helped to illustrate some of the ways that Wright did resist the Jim Crow system while still surviving in a society where it was dangerous to be a man of color.

    • I am glad to read that the book is growing on you. I agree that we do see the magistrate’s development throughout the book. It is debatable whether or not he is fully redeemed. Your comments about the soldiers being more barbaric than the barbarians is also really interesting. We will be talking about that next class, so be sure to hear your thoughts.

    • I’m glad that you found our class discussions helpful as you approached the next two chapters of the novel. Great observations about the barbarian girl. Although she has been injured by the torture, she is one of the most competent of the travelers. I really like your analysis of the effects that the magistrate’s treatment has on him, especially that “being treated like a beast will make you almost become one.” How does that relate to the way in which the barbarians were treated/viewed?

    • Love the image you included in this post. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the first part of the novel. There are six books in the series, so I am afraid you won’t get all the answers you’re hoping for (unless you keep reading). Great observations about how this story undermines gender stereotypes. Also, your speculation about what would happen if there was only one woman is fascinating and might work well for the final essay in your class.

    • I love the image you included here. It certainly captures the sorrow of the titular sorrowful woman. You do a nice job of analyzing the story, and I like that you consider different possible interpretations. It does seem like the woman is suffering from a psychological disorder, like depression, but as you note, the story might also be critiquing traditional gender roles. What did you make of the character of the father? Did he seems like a realistic character to you?
