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.

Congrats! I love love love love love art history.ReplyDelete
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 : )ReplyDelete
woohoo! Good job. :) And your Nobel Lit. class looks awesome.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Congrats on your A! That's a lot of detail you have to remember, but you'll use it again and again.ReplyDelete
The reading list looks interesting. Enjoy!
