ENG 2400 Films from Literature, Spring 2020

Films from Literature     open-book midterm exam    Prof. Masiello

 

Note:  for your midterm exam, chapter 2 was written by Robert Stanley; chapter 6 was written by David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson.   (I am not the author of those chapters.)

Attribute the ideas to them.  Ex.  According to Bordwell and Thomas, “Xxxhasjo la;l;a;a   …………” (39).

Or our authors write, “  Xxxhasjo la;l;a;a   …………”  (Bordwell and Thomas  39).

and remember to explain what you quote!

REMEMBER, WHEN YOU DOCUMENT A QUOTE IN PARENTHESES THE PAGE NUMBER IS JUST A NUMBER, NO “p” IS ADDED, AND YOU SHOULD ONLY USE THE AUTHOR(S) NAMES IN ONE PLACE:  EITHER BEFORE THE QUOTE OR PARENTHETICALLY, BUT NOT BOTH PLACES.   THE LAST NAME AND THE NUMBER DO NOT USE A COMMA BETWEEN.

Remember do a, b, c, and d for each question.

In part 1 you were NOT supposed to name the example films named by the author(s).
