Thursday, Oct. 6th

We discussed chapters 10-15 of Frankenstein today, focusing on the DIONYSIAN and APOLLONIAN qualities in Victor Frankenstein and his creature.  This culminated in preparations for a DEBATE on whether Frankenstein should creature a bride for the creature or not.

Everyone has been assigned a persona.  Come up with an argument either for or against making a bride.  Speak from the perspective of the persona you have been assigned.  You have 60 seconds to deliver your argument.  You will be marked on the CONTENT and the DELIVERY.  You should appeal to ethics/credibility, logic, and emotions. (20 marks)

After your 60 seconds of uninterrupted speech, there will be another 60 seconds for questions and answers.

Please read chapters 16-18 (possibly even 19) to prepare for the debate.
