Lesson Plan

A Study of Twentieth Century British Culture through Art and Literature

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Here’s an interesting approach to the analysis of similar subjects in different mediums. Based on the methodology of Professor Jules Prown, learners apply his three stages (description, deduction, and speculation) to a painting and a work of literature. For example, The Merry-Go-Round, a painting by Mark Gertler, is paired with D.H. Lawrence’s short story, “The Rocking Horse Winner.” The richly detailed plan describes the process and provides an extensive list of possible pairings.
