A Portrait of My Weekend
Not because I am being dragged behind a chariot-though writing a paper can sometimes evoke a similar sensation-but because I've locked myself in my room to investigate the story of this man and his step-mother in my second paper of the semester: "Choice and Charm: A Comparative Analysis of Euripedes’ Hippolytus and Jean Racine’s Phaedra" for my class on models of dramatic structure.
Why does four pages sometimes feel like 40? Probably when you have to compare and contrast the political structures, moral world and character treatment all in one four page paper.
First paper of the semester successfully turned in on Thursday: "A Night with the Tsar: The Opening of the Moscow Art Theatre"
