      • ize one or more of the relevant main ideas in McLuhan's chapter. What is McLuhan's position?
      • Can you reflect his position? What other phenomena might support or exemplify McLuhan's idea? 
      • Are there metaphors, images, films, or other cultural texts that you think might further illustrate McLuhan's argument? 
      • What is your own position relative to McLuhan? How has reading and reflecting on this affected your experience or thinking about the world?

      The response paper is not a book review (i.e. "I really enjoyed it when the author...") or a simple regurgitation of the chapter's contents (i.e. first he says, then he says, and finally he says..."). 


      Much of our conversation and invention in class will draw from our reading of a set of common texts, including McLuhan’s chapter. These will also introduce a set of concepts that will play into other papers we'll write this

  • At the risk of exciting a somewhat derisive smile on the reader's part, I may affirm that with regard to the women who had hitherto interested him, it very often seemed to Winterbourne among the possibilities that, given certain contingencies, he should be afraid--literally afraid--of these ladies; he had a pleasant sense that he should never be afraid of Daisy Miller. It must be added that this sentiment was not altogether flattering to Daisy; it was part of his conviction, or rather of his apprehension,  that she would prove a very light young person.

  • "I haven't  the least idea what such young ladies expect a man to do. But I really think that you had better not meddle with little American girls that are uncultivated, as you call them. You have lived too long out of the country. You will be sure to make some great mistake. You are too innocent."


    "My dear  aunt, I am not so innocent," said Winterbourne, smiling and curling his mustache.

  • hough he  was impatient to see her, he hardly knew what he should say to her about his aunt's refusal to become acquainted with her; but he discovered, promptly enough, that with Miss Daisy Miller there was no great need of walking on tiptoe.    He found her that evening in the garden, wandering about in the warm starlight like an indolent sylph, and swinging to and fro the largest fan he had ever beheld.
