*September 18

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Hello, I Love You," "Love Her Madly" & "Love Me Two Times" by The Doors]

Bukowski's "Laughing Heart" communicates abstract, complicated ideas (inspiration, risk, independence, fulfillment, the meaning of life) in just a few lines.  How is it possible for something this short to convey as much meaning as a 700-page novel?

  1. i dont remember what you said in class, do we have homework or no?

  2. You only have homework if you haven't yet picked an American novel yet, and explained why, and posted the title/author/reason to your blog-- wait, hang on a minute. I'll just open another tab and... yep. You have homework. :)

    1. And can it be moderen or does it have to be from the past?

    2. The only requirements are: 1. The novel has to be American; 2. The novel has to be at your reading level or above; and (most importantly) 3. You have to want to read it.
