Emily, Elvis, and Featherless Suede

Hans Ostrom
This weekend, read and interact with Emily Dickinson and Elvis Presley in Heaven by Hans Ostrom. You may need to look up some of the references and allusions since both of these pop culture figures come from times before your own.

Then blog questions 1-5. These questions are all meant to help you make sense of this poem and its commentary on pop culture.

Lastly, brainstorm some famous people you'd like to toss together in heaven that would help illustrate your own commentary on pop culture.

After this and the activities on Monday, we'll start to narrow to the topic of our first synthesis paper.
