Assignment for 7/1

For Thursday July 1, finish the García Márquez book if you haven’t already. Your next response paper will be due next Tuesday, July 6.

Then pick a passage from anywhere in the book about failed revolution. Type or photocopy and mark up your passage (notice at least 5 specific things–and hopefully more–about the language and structure) and bring it to class Thursday. Some things to think about:  what happens to make so many revolutionary missions (particularly those of Aureliano Buendía) fail? Why are they fighting in the first place? How can you connect these failures to what you know about revolution, nationalism, gender, and romance in the 1960s?
