World Literature Time Line (Attachment)
Each week, locate on the Time Line the author or authors you are assigned to read in your textbook. Boldface the name of the author(s) and add an asterisk (*) at the front.
Under each author you identify, add your annotation. This should include a description of the author’s contribution to contemporary world literature and your own impressions.
*Rabindranath Tagore. Offered a new voice to Indian expression. He was a short-story writer, song composer, playwright, essayist, and painter who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Tagore introduced new prose and verse forms and the use of colloquial language into Bengali literature, thereby freeing it from traditional models based on classical Sanskrit. He is generally regarded as the outstanding creative artist of modern India. I enjoy the natural quality and the personal tone of his verse: “The carriage stands at the door. It is midday./ The autumn sun is gradually gathering strength.” And so on.
Highlight and comment on at least one author per week. Feel free to highlight and comment on more than one per week. (You may want to comment on an additional author that especially interests you. Feel free to add new author names if they are not already listed on the Time Line.)
