WL – Discussion post answers

) The first topic I’m sure you could have predicted. We are still trying to work with the “elements of fiction,” and be sensitive to which are most significant and how they function. In this story, I’m sure will agree that “point of view” is significant. Who is this narrator, and what is his point of view. But what about all the other people? Almost as an investigative reporter, the narrator gathers the opinions and points of view of all the townspeople. What is the nature and significance of their perspectives? Why does it matter? Look at point of view from as many angles as you can, and you will find that the discussion leads to some other important issues in the novel.
2.) An important issue in this novel is the concept of guilt. Who is guilty in this novel? Normally mysteries feature a detective who tries to sort out the clues and figure out who’s responsible. Well, who “done it” in this novel; just the Vicario brothers, or is there a greater sense of culpability that permeates the novel? The narrator seems reluctant to point fingers, but you can! Go for it! Impugn, implicate, and indict as many people as you can/wish, but make sure you back up your accusations!
3. )This relates to question 2. According to Russian Structuralist Critic Tzvetan Todorov in his article “The Typology of Detective Fiction,” the detective novel can be classified in the following manner
a. The novel must have at most one detective and one criminal, and at least one victim (a corpse).
b. The culprit must not be a professional criminal, must not be the detective, must kill for personal reasons.
c. Love has no place in detective fiction.
d. The culprit must have a certain importance
– in life, not be a butler or a chambermaid
– in the book: must be one of the main characters
e. Everything must be explained rationally. The fantastic is not admitted.
f. There is no place for descriptions, nor for psychological analyses.
g. With regard to information about the story, the following homology must be observed: ‘author: reader = criminal : detective’
h. Banal situations and solutions must be avoided
How does Chronicle uphold or subvert the genre of the mystery novel as defined by Todorov? How does García Márquez use (or abuse) the mystery genre to fulfill his authorial objectives, and WHY? This is a fun one, but again, don’t forget “THE POINT” as explained above. Explain how this novel fits into the artistic project of Garcia Marquez and what is ultimately communicated to the reader through such a unique approach to detective fiction.
4.) This is also related to question 2: Is this novel about basic human passions and emotions, especially pain, suffering and guilt, like a Greek Tragedy? Referring to Aristotles Poetics, we find the one of the basic elements of tragedy is catharsis (Katharsis). “Catharsis” has a number of definitions, from “the purging of emotions and relieving of emotional tensions” to a “discharge of pent-up emotions resulting in alleviation of the symptoms of the condition.” (Check your own dictionary as well.) Does Chronicle serve that purpose for the townspeople in the novel, or for the readers themselves? Is Chronicle related to Greek Tragedy in that manner? I cannot include the quote from Aristotle’s Poetics right here in the body of this message because it does not fit, but please refer to the Final Paper assignment under Course Documents if you are interested in writing on this topic.
Not an essay so please do not format it as one. They are discussion questions.

Read Carlos Bulosan Freedom from Want (1943)

It has to be one page long and here are some example questions that you can respond too
When these writers discuss liberty and equality in America, who are they including? Who are they excluding? What are these authors’ positions in relation to power, and how do they use this power for personal, political, or literary gain? How do different genres of writing journals, essays, biographies, poems, political speeches, etc. speak to different audiences and serve different purposes? How do these genres expand our understanding of freedom in America in distinctly different and sometimes oppositional ways?

The Case of Paula Plantiff

Paula Plaintiff is shopping at her favorite store, Cash Mart. She is looking for a new laptop, but she cannot find one she likes. Then, realizing that she is going to be late for an appointment, she attempts to leave the store, walking very fast. However, before she can leave, she is stopped by a security guard who accuses her of shoplifting. Paula, who has taken nothing, denies any wrongdoing. The officer insists and takes Paula to a small room in the back of the store. The guard tells Paula that if she attempts to leave the room she will be arrested and sent to jail. At this point, the guard leaves the room. Paula is scared and waits in the room for over an hour until the manager comes in and apologizes and tells Paula that she is free to go.
About this same time, Geoffrey Golfer is hitting golf balls in his backyard. Geoffrey decides to break out his new driver and hits a golf ball out of his backyard into the Cash Mart parking lot. The golf ball hits Paula Plaintiff on the head and knocks her unconscious just as she is leaving the store.

short discussion about illegal music downloads.

Follow these instructions:
This week’s discussion topic is about how music is “sold” or shared (legally and illegally) on the internet. Composers and musicians have traditionally been able to earn income through sales of their recorded works and compositions. File sharing compensation laws and illegal file sharing sites have changed this in the internet age, making it more difficult for artists to be paid for music distributed over the internet. This assignment has you read about the fairly new Music Modernization Act, signed into law in 2018, and also includes jazz composer Maria Schneider’s testimony to Congress about how the large players in data collection have gotten around paying artists for the intellectual content/creative property. Artists and record companies continue making efforts to work with lawmakers to look at current file sharing law.
Research this topic to find a variety of viewpoints which could help you form an educated opinion on the topic.
