For Tuesday, read through Chekhov’s “The Looking-Glass” and label every piece of text that contributes to characterization. Follow the coding method I illustrated in class, e.g. Mode: facet:example:trait, as in ID [Indirect Definition]: action: “dreaming”: imaginative or DD[Direct Definition]: “unutterable terror,” etc. If you have time, begin reading Joyce’s “Two Gallants” from Dubliners.
If you need to refresh your memories, check out Nariman’s excellent notes on our class wiki.
