Week Two Discussion (Read Videotape -by Don DeLillo)

Category: English

By Wednesday of Week Two, respond to all of the following questions. Your main post needs to be at least 250 words in length. 

1) Think about the narrative voice. a) Who is speaking? b) Who is the “you” the narrator speaks to? c) What is the effect of this direct address? d) Why did Delillo write the story in this way?

2) Think about the relationship between the girl, the camera, and reality. How does the camera mediate (or change) her view of reality? Why do you think Delillo chose to have a 12-year old girl do the videotaping?

3) Describe the structure and style of the story. Why does the writer repeat the phrase “it shows…” at the beginning of so many paragraphs?
