YOUR REVIEW SHOULD HAVE 3 PARTS:

The 1st paragraph should be a
summary of the author’s argument. After reading the essay, consider the following
questions as you write:

  1. What is the thesis/main
    argument(s)?
  2. What are the major
    points/issues of the argument (s)?
  3. How does the author try to
    convince you of his/her argument? Through repetition, comparison,
    allegory, etc.?
  4. What evidence does the
    author use to support his/her argument? Does he/she rely on quotes from
    the time period? Other images? Novels, etiquette manuals, treatises, etc.
    from the time period? Etc.
  5. What about the work of art
    seems to interest the author: the class, ethnicity or gender of the
    persons depicted? The history/mythology being depicted? The political or
    historical ramifications of the scene depicted? The formal elements of the
    composition? The symbolism of objects depicted? etc.

The 2nd paragraph should be a
critique of the author’s argument. After reading the essay and summarizing the
argument in the 1st paragraph, consider the following questions:

  1. Is the author’s argument
    convincing? Why or why not?
  2. Does the author make any
    assumptions about the intentions of the artist? About the meaning of the
    work of art? Other assumptions? If so, what are they?
  3. What conflicts or problems
    do you see with the argument? Are there any contradictions?
  4. What are the positive
    aspects of the argument? Do you find it a productive way to think about
    the image(s)?
  5. Could the argument apply to
    other images/artists? If so, how? Be specific.

**Three Questions

After
the 2nd paragraph, skip several lines and list 3 questions you have
about the essay or that you think would generate class discussion. These
questions will be used as a basis for discussion in class.

These
questions should be typewritten and DONE BEFORE CLASS. You
will not get credit for questions that are handwritten!
