When I first signed up for “Literature and the Other Arts,” I assumed that the course would include something along the lines of doing analyses of movies, paintings, songs, and other mediums people use to convey ideas and emotions. I pictured the work in the class being very similar to other English classes, such as writing the typical 4-5 page essay, but instead of writing on poems, plays, and novels, I would be writing on these other forms of Art. I had no idea I would be challenged to produce my analyses not through written words, but by actively and directly working with these mediums. Creating a playlist to represent a character, recording a podcast on one of my favorite bands, and creating my own collage not only allowed me to exercise my analytical skills on different forms of art, but the in-depth experience allowed me to gain a better understanding of each of these art forms work in their own right. Below is an account of each of my projects thus far, including what I have learned from each project and how I plan to use this knowledge to revise them.
