S4E7 - There's No I in Essay
1 year ago
This week we’re talking about essays that aren’t in the first person. Elena picked one example, Eliot Weinberger’s “The Rhinoceros,” and Justin picked another, an excerpt from Claudia Rankine’s Citizen. Also: the new Macbeth, the acting role Elena was recently offered, Elena recites some Lady Macbeth, some Arnold Palmer talk, and a mini-spelling bee.
Some things we mention:
Eliot Weinberger’s “The Rhinoceros”: http://www.rhinoresourcecenter.com/pdf_files/120/1206206707.pdf
Claudia Rankine’s Citizen: https://www.graywolfpress.org/books/citizen
Brian Doyle’s “Joyas Voladoras”: https://theamericanscholar.org/joyas-volardores/
