Reading for this weekend: 2/10

Take a minute to read this article: https://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/on-the-implausibility-of-the-death-stars-trash-compactor

After reading, consider the narrative tone of the piece. For example, the language used, what emotions it may have evoked in you. Did you find it funny? Think about what and how the article’s author accomplished this in terms of the language used.

Bring some ideas about this to class on Monday. Next week, we’ll start discussing writing styles, and why they’re important.
