Presentation Description

Literary criticism may be though of as an information base that is often difficult for students to fully access, evaluate, and incorporate into their own thinking. They shy from the usual tedious research methods and end up with perfunctory results. This presentation considers the advantages of using contemporary cinema as a medium to teach varied forms of literary criticism: color as rhetorical vehicle, archetypal (Jungian and Campbell), biological and historical, and Marxist. Students will thoroughly enjoy this classroom strategy because of their overwhelming fascination with video formats and pop culture.
