Pre-Raphaelite Final

Friday, May 5th, 2017

For my Pre-Raphaelite final with Dr. Hagen I did a photo project with Pre-Raphealite inspired themes. Shayna acted as my Ophelia, posing in natural and watery settings. We took over 300 photos and I ended up using 13 for my final project. I did some photoshop, but very minimal to keep with the Pre-Raphaelite belief that we should show things the way they were, not the way we want them to be. I was really lucky that it was such a beautiful day so I was able to capture high detail on the camera. This shoot went so well I ended up using a few of the photos for my photography portfolio as well. I love creative projects like these because it really allows me to contribute to what I am learning. Here are a few of my favorites!

World of Warcraft, John Keats, and my last paper

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

What does the popular MMORPG World of Warcraft have to do with 19th century romantic poet John Keats? Well, for one thing, they are both featured in my final paper for British Literature II, the last paper I need to write before I graduate! For this paper we were challenged with the task of selecting a written work we studied this semester and finding a modern artifact that clearly drew inspiration from or critiques it. And YES, World of Warcraft writers were inspired by Keats. In the third installment of the game there are hundreds of references to John Keats Poetry as well as several other well-known authors such as T.S. Eliot and William Wordsworth. Where are these references found? In the armor. John Keats “viewless wings of poesy” become WoWs Viewless Wings item level 359, +18 Agility, +27 Stamina, +12 Critical Strike, +12 Haste, usable by druids, hunters, rogues, Shaman, and Monks. I won’t get into the analysis here, but the point is, pay attention to where your academics come into play in every day life and get creative with your essay topics!
