Pleasant Journeys

You turned in the final draft of your Mything in Action paper. We read of Odysseus' return to Ithaca while you took notes. Said notes will be due on the day of the final.

We reviewed the ideas of symbolism and imagery. You watched Pleasantville while looking for examples of symbolic imagery. Again, I am still amazed that despite earning three Academy Award nominations, hitting the ten year milestone last year, and starring several incredibly famous actors that no special edition DVD or Blu-Ray exists of this movie. A making-of documentary and some commentary would be pretty fascinating.

The grading of the culminating papers continues. I have yet to hit my groove on them, but that'll probably be on it's way back shortly.
