Project #32633 - Libra

  You’ll have to talk about FOUR quotes from Libra this book. The author name is Delillo. So we have to read "Libra" first.

Remember to expand on the quotes, to show how they illustrate particular themes that are present elsewhere in the novel.  

 

The words you need to remember to use are:  ILLUSTRATE, SUGGEST, IMPLY, SYMBOLIZE, SPEAK TO, SHOW US, REMIND US, and REPRESENT.  

 

 you need to come up with an idea (or thesis) about the one quote, or about the set of quotes that's been bunched at the one number (like the quotes about how delillo treats women in the novel).  then you explain your idea and elaborate on it.  you do that for each quote; you do that four times.

 

Just explain the quotes, as though you were talking to someone who read the novel but who read it quickly, last night, after a beer or two.  You are teaching this person something that you have noticed about the novel.  You are providing insight into the novel, showing the reader what they might have missed when they read it—what themes they might have missed, and what connections they might have missed.  You are, ideally, making their reading experience of this novel richer, and more fulfilling. 

 

Here is the quotes:

 1. “Spy planes, drone aircraft, satellites with cameras that can see from three hundred miles what you can see from a hundred feet.  They see and they hear.  Like ancient monks, you know, who recorded knowledge, wrote it painstakingly down.  These systems collect and process.  All the secret knowledge of the world.”  (p. 77)

 

2.“Delphine was at the desk in the outer office.  She gave him a little prissy look that meant she knew he’d been drinking.  With a mistress like this, he didn’t need a wife.”  (p. 141)…   “Because it would be devastating if you weren’t well.  That musn’t happen, understand?  I actually couldn’t bear it.”  (p. 360) … “He liked a woman with freckled cleavage.”  (p. 350) … “Mary Frances pushed the vacuum cleaner across the living room floor.  She was feeling bloated and hormonal.”  (p. 359)  (As examples of how women are treated in this novel.)

 

3.Sentence structure—for example in the paragraph on page 71.  Subject, verb, object—no transitions.

 

4. “This is the room of dreams, the room where it has taken him all these years to learn that his subject is not politics or violent crime but men in small rooms.”  (p. 181)… “Men in small rooms, in isolation.  A cell is the basic state.”  (p. 196)

 

Each quotes explain at least one page, double space.
