Reading for Oct 14

Here's the email from Scott just in case you're wondering if he has sent you an email yet. For the PDF of Raymond Carver's "Feathers" email Scott (or me).

For next week please read the attached short story by Raymond Carver. Please let me know if you have any trouble opening the PDF. Don't be scared by the amount of pages, it's fiction so it should be a quick read for you. Funny isn't a word often attributed to Carver, but his work can be considered a blending of humor and sadness. I'd like to spend some time next week discussing the fine line between funny and sad, so feel free to bring to class anything else you think may fit in this category. I'm also hoping to discuss the use and metaphor of the ecological as a tool for humor in contemporary art. Again, if you have any examples or something you'd like to discuss, please bring it with you. Thanks, and have a good weekend.
