march 12


Yesterday several students commented that the last couple chapters of Brave New World seem to "happen" at a quicker pace than the rest of the novel.  As preparation for today's discussion of close/analytical reading, see if you can identify the changes in Huxley's writing that create this effect.  Getting the intuitive sense that something changed is an important first step; can you point to specific techniques (diction, syntax) or frame your argument in terms of tone, theme, or plot?  Do your best, we will use what you say-- and what you don't say-- as the foundation for today's discussion.
