Look at the following photos (click on the PDF file below) and decide which one best suits the excerpt you read by Paul Auster. Be prepared to explain why (that is: explain your choice of the photo).
Then look at the following video clip. Pau Auster’s wife Siri Hustvedt, talks about consumerism and propaganda. In what way are they linked? Can you answer some of the questions she is posing? She raises some interesting issues and I would love you to be prepared to discuss them in class. Your answers will certainly pave the way to our analysis of "1984" and "Animal Farm".
