I've gotten a moderate amount accomplished today, but my Italian Renaissance paper is like pulling teeth. 8 pages to compare/contrast Andrea del Castagno's Last Supper with Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. Pulling. Teeth. I think I know all the points I want to make, but I'm really not sure I can make 8 pages. And it has to be on the 8th page...he said so. It only has to be one line on that page (so 7 pages and 1 line), but it has to hit 8 pages. Ugh!
I think after my break I'm going to switch to my Film History paper. Maybe I can get that one knocked out tonight, and finish Italian Renaissance tomorrow. The Film paper will be much easier. Discussing Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, Claude Chabrol's Les bonnes femmes, and Roberto Rossellini's Open City in terms of director's style and themes, the way they fit into their respective movements (Hollywood, French New Wave, Italian Neorealism), and how they compare to the examples of those movements we watched in class. And it only has to be 6 to 7 pages.
I could probably write 10-12 on that. But 8 pages for The Last Supper? Gag me with a spoon.
Well, back to the grindstone, I think.
