Blogs of the Week — From the Seniors

The Seniors produced some truly interesting and creative work this trimester.  There have been wonderful examples of original thought connecting the four works we have studied this year:  Death of a Salesman, The Importance of Being Earnest, Waiting For Godot, and Master Harold and the Boys.

The snow globe on the left comes courtesy of Jordynn Lurie, who represented the empty, barren world of Waiting for Godot with an empty snow globe decorated with a spiral of words from Lucky’s speech.  Another piece to check out:  Her original rap with themes and language straight outa’ the plays.  Thanks, DJOrdynn!


Alejandro Cegarra presents some brilliant connections in his blog, which he punctuates with Memes related to the different plays. His commentary on social criticism and historical readings of Master Harold, Death of a Salesman, and The Importance of Being Earnest.  Have a look at his blog from this link.

Liora Gafen did a brilliant job of combining lines from Willy Loman and Vladimir from Waiting for Godot.  Here’s a link to her post, entitled “Hopelessness Mashup.”

Kevin Shen gives us two very interesting posts about dreams in Death of a Salesman Waiting for Godot and the concept of nothing that appears in both The Importance of Being Earnest and Waiting for Godot.  Have a look at this link!
