The Day of the Locust explication

The Day of the Locust explication

Prompts:
(a)As we shall see, crowds are often depicted as either shocking or sublime. In both of these cases, the person or point of view encountering the crowd is described as overwhelmed and unable to fully comprehend the crowd in a conscious, rational way. Choosing at least two scenes, explicate how the text or texts convey the narrator or another character’s sense of shock or awe to the reader. Then, based on that explication, interpret and explain what the text or texts are saying about some aspect of crowds and what they represent. For example, what does the shocking or sublime nature of crowds in “The Day of the Locust” tell us about mass media such as Hollywood films? Why might the theatre-going crowd be portrayed as threatening, irrational, or beyond the narrator’s understanding? Keep in mind that the crowd may be a metaphor or synecdoche.
(b) Crowds purportedly allow those who travel in them to become anonymous, leaving their names and even identities behind. Choosing at least two scenes, explicate how the text or texts use characterization, voice, and other literary techniques to represent the anonymity of the crowd. Why might the narrator or other characters welcome the experience of losing their individuality or sense of self? What does this tell us about a larger theme?
(c)Choose at least two physical descriptions of characters. After performing a careful explication of these descriptions, explain what these bodily descriptions mean. What do these bodies symbolize? How do these bodies relate to the concept of the body politic introduced in Shakespear’s Coriolanus? For example, “I Was Marching” by Meridel Le Sueur and The Day of the Locust both describe the bodies of characters as automatons, but they both come to very different conclusions based on how they imagine the body politic.
