17. Don Quixote, Part II: Chapters XXII-***V Cervantes' Don Quixote (SPAN 300) This lecture covers two of the most important episodes of Part II of the Quixote: the descent into Montesinos cave and Master Peter's puppet show. The first one, on the one hand, engages the main literary topics and sources of the novel. Cervantes, by submitting Don Quixote's fantasies to natural law, questions the belief in the authenticity of the romances of chivalry and the reality of what his protagonist sees. The episode also provides a glimpse into the inner workings of Don Quixote's subconscious: his descent is a harsh look onto himself which, while not completely destroying his beliefs, weakens them seriously, and from now on he will act saner. Master Peter's puppet show introduces again Ginés de Pasamonte, the character who represents the figure of the modern author in both parts of the novel. With Ginés now disguised as a master puppeteer, Cervantes criticizes his contemporary playwright Lope de Vega, but most importantly, through the complex ***-l'oeil that the puppet show constitutes, Cervantes ***yzes the act of mimesis.

24. Don Quixote, Part II: Chapters LXXI-LXXIV (cont.) Cervantes' Don Quixote (SPAN 300) Would have Cervantes deserved such recognition, had he not written the Quixote? The answer is no. However, he would probably be remembered for some of his other works. Two of The Exemplary Stories, significantly connected together, are commented in this lecture. "The Deceitful Marriage" deconstructs marriage both as a social institution and as a narrative tool: Cervantes manipulates literary conventions by beginning with what is normally the end of a story, a marriage, and works backwards to undue a union that never took place legitimately. In "The Dogs Colloquy" we skirt the supernatural idea that dogs can talk. The story is a picaresque autobiography in which the pícaro pretends to be a dog. Perhaps Scipio's life, not told here, could have been another Quixote. The author of a story, it is suggested, does not control the text while it is being read. A short comment on Kafka's parable "The Truth about Sancho Panza" and Borges' story Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote precede the end of this last lecture that refers to Cervantes' death. Drawing a parallel between Cervantes' death and that of Don Quixote and Alonso Quijano, González Echevarría reads the dedication to Persiles and Cervantes', and also his own, farewell to this course.

Disney songs taken literally: "Hellfire." Or, alternatively, "Frollo had a bit of trouble with the fireplace." Again, sticking with annotations for this one. Not as literalized as the last though. This song's a bit harder to literalize.

Disney songs taken literally: "I'll Make A Man Out Of You" Or, alternatively, "the Chinese drill seargent's unreasonable demands." I'm only using annotations for this one, partly because I couldn't think of any worthwhile animation or video to replace the main music video with. I might get more creative with later literalized Disney songs.
Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani? Eli, Eli, Lema Sabachtani? (My God My God Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me?) posits a future world in which a suicide plague can only be controlled through noise rock. Noise rock, as the name suggests, is an acquired taste. More than that, though — it's a taste that's difficult to describe or defend to people who don't have the ear for it. To most people, artists who fall into the noise-rock category (ie Merzbow) are merely crafting ear-blistering feedback, white noise that annoys. The appeal in such an extreme form of music, in my eyes, lies in its cathartic element. There's little that can make you feel better about your bad mood like the sound of someone bashing the hell out of his guitar strings, screaming his guts out or using atypical instruments to make sounds that shouldn't exist in this dimension. Director Shinji Aoyama (Eureka) understands this quality, and for his latest film he's gone ahead and literalized the idea.

Disney songs taken literally: "Gaston" Found the image of bowling pins through a google search and used it without permission. I assume I wouldn't get in trouble for that. oo Managed to think of a couple moments where replacing the original animation (corresponding to the music) with something else was worthwhile. Otherwise, it's pretty much just annotations like with previous literalized Disney songs. Again, this one was a bit hard to literalize. I'll probably think of something better next time.
