Dramaturgy Assignment:Adaptation- Final Stages

This week I have the first read through of my adaptation of ‘The Lady of Shalott’ which I’ve recently titled “Unraveled.” I’ve been doing a lot of research on pre-raphaelite art and arthurian legend, which has been satisfying my nerd necessities for far too long, in order to see what commentary I would like to make on Tennyson’s poem. I’ve also done a lot of image research, which I’m hesitant to post on my page since obviously the works aren’t mind. It’s nothing too exciting, but its keeping me pretty smiley right now, so I thought I’d post an update of sorts. 

I had for many years accustomed myself to the prospect of a solitary life. To be poor, ugly and, moreover, intelligent, condemns one, in our society, to a dark and disillusioned life, a condition one ought to accept at an early age.

Nighthawk and its Parodies

There is nothing like puking with somebody to make you into old friends.
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
Try this. Try this on for size. They lie to you. You’re growing up and they go out of their way to hedge, to qualify, to…to evade; to avoid-to lie. Never tell it how it is-how it’s going to be-when a half-truth can be got in there. Never give the alternatives to the “pleasing prospects,” the “what you have to look forward to.” God, if they did the streets’d be littered with adolescent corpses! Maybe it’s better they don’t.
