Choose one article, poem, story, etc. from a literary journal (one of modernism’s “small magazines”) and one article, etc. from a mass-produced commercial magazine or newspaper. Take notes as you read and then publish your comments on the piece by the end of the class period. Comments should include:
1. A brief summary of each piece.
2. A substantial quotation from each of your chosen texts, followed by your own interpretative commentary.
3. Further commentary on the cultural significance of what you have read. This might include connections to other things we’ve read in our course and/or other things you’ve read in your research, insight into cultural norms of the period, and even reflections on the relationship of the content to contemporary life.
