In class on Friday we took another look at the reading from below, and focused on these three questions:
- Who/what is Wolverine?
- Who/what is Wolverine supposed to be?
- Are we attracted to archetypes because they are how things are “supposed” to be?
For homework, those of you who didn’t post on Thursday should do so here this weekend. Use those narrowed down questions above to help if you were stuck before.
In class today we talked about the X-Men character Wolverine. We watched a couple of clips from various X-Men movies and filled in some knowledge gaps people unfamiliar with the X-Men might have.
Then, we reviewed some key words from this year: archetype and allegory. We also talked about duality. Remember that from 9th grade Romeo and Juliet?
In class (and now for homework) we read this article: the-best-there-is-wolverine
For homework, answer question #3 that’s on the front page of the reading.
