And now for your next trick. . . Susan Sontag describes camp as “The whole point of Camp is to dethrone the serious. Camp is playful, anti-serious. More precisely, Camp involves a new, more complex relation to “the serious.” One can be serious about the frivolous, frivolous about the serious.” Write a 1000- to 1500-word (4 to 6 pages) paper discussing camp elements of Gorey’s work. When is my paper due? The final draft (i.e., double-spaced, 12-pt. Courier) is due via TurnItIn by 11:55 p.m. Newberry Time (EDT) on Tuesday, 12 April 22. What does this paper mean to my grade? This paper is worth 15% of your grade. What will Dr. Moore be grading in this paper? I will be asking the following questions: Does the paper fulfill the assignment? (i.e., does it do the things I mentioned higher on the page?) Do the letters/notes make their points clearly and understandably? Does the work meet the conventions of college-level writing (e.g., spelling, punctuation, various grammar issues)? A paper that does all these things will be satisfactory. A paper that does all these things and is interesting/pleasant to read will be better than that. Will Dr. Moore be available to discuss my paper with me? Of course I will. See me during my office hours or make an appt. Some advice from your Uncle Warren: The length suggestion is a guideline, not a straitjacket. Do not be afraid to write a little longer or shorter, if you do the job well. I’m not expecting the definitive interpretations of these works. I’m wanting to see if you have something to say, and if you can support that argument. Good luck, and good writing.
