Monday, Dec. 12th

We discussed remaining points from Part I chapters 1-5, so because we did not finish chapters 6, there is no need to read ahead unless you want to do so.  We read “The Censors” in class and looked for parallels to Winston and Syme in the novel.  We also watched a clip from Pink Floyd’s The Wall, looking for parallels to the novel.

We shall continue discussing Part I chapters 5-6 next class.  Please write DIARY #4.
