Harkness- on research and pp. 240-end  60 pts

1984--come to class with author, title, and two pertinent ideas from JSTOR criticism on the novel--try to specifically address concepts from pp.168-219--SUGGESTIONS: language, politics, Julia, the brotherhood, O'Brien, Charrington, the proles, etc..

 

For the Harkness: Find three ideas from your JSTOR article that correlate with content from your reading this week, pp. 82-136.
 
Here is an example of ONE IDEA:  In "George Orwell and T.S. Eliot: The Sense of the Past" Vincent Sherry compares Orwell to Eliot in that both authors are "social realists" and share a longing for the past; however, Sherry states that while Orwell's sense of the past tends to be local, specific, and English (note the junk shop and the way in which Orwell describes Winston's nostalgia for its past items), Eliot's notion of the past leans toward a larger, world-cultural,and world-historical perspective.
