Art History --- A!!!!!

Laocoon and his Sons

I got an A in my Art History class!   Lordy, it was more tough and rough than I expected for a lower division class.  However, I learned so many interesting things and have a much better appreciation for ancient art and architecture.   I am done with my lower division courses and have 3 upper division courses left.    My next class, which starts March 1st, is going to be quite interesting - Nobel Literature.  The course will involve discussing the history and of course, controversy surrounding the Nobel Prize.  Plus reading and analyzing 4 books which under ordinary circumstances probably would never even consider reading.  When I looked up what books were required for the class, I was hooked.  I received them yesterday and all look very interesting.  

French Existentialism

German literature

Literary Fiction - mythical latin american town

Japanese Literature


  1. Congrats! I love love love love love art history.

  2. I love the way that art can enhance literature. Laocoon is a perfect example of that, although I'm sure you found a million connections throughout the course of your ... course ;) Art history wasn't required for my major (English), but I took it as an elective and it was more valuable to my life as an English teacher (and as a writer) than some of my English-specific classes. Sorry about the ramble ... and congrats on your A : )

  3. woohoo! Good job. :) And your Nobel Lit. class looks awesome.

  4. Woo Hoo on the A. I'll wait for your take on 100 Years. One of the books I could never, ever get through. I tried it a few times but never finished it. Thank goodness I didn't have to read it for a class.

  5. Congrats on your A! That's a lot of detail you have to remember, but you'll use it again and again.

    The reading list looks interesting. Enjoy!
