Last Quote Reflection & Edison FIlm

You will get the majority of your quote reflections back this week – be sure to keep these. The prompt for the most recent one is below, for those of you who had absences last week. You should have four in total – and your writing has improved by leaps and bounds over the course of completing these reflections! Be sure to recycle any great ideas in final papers!

Frankenstein Ch. 16-19

Also, we watched Thomas Edison’s 1910 film version of Frankenstein in class on Friday – be sure to watch the following if you weren’t there!

This Week’s Frankenstein Reflections

A Block:

Frankenstein 14-16

B Block:

Frankenstein 12-15

Both classes will read through chapter 19 for Thursday, March 15.

IF YOU WERE ABSENT this week, please see me in addition to downloading these documents. There is a photocopied handout with Frankenstein supplements that you will need, as well. (Godwin’s An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice, Byron’s “Prometheus,”  Hazlitt’s “Remarks on Paradise Lost,” and Percy Shelley’s Prometheus Unbound and A Defense of Poetry.)

Remember: William Godwin was Mary’s father; Percy Shelley was her husband. Quite the family!
