cubism: compare/contrast poem by Stein “If I Told Him: A Completed Portrait of Picasso” and Picasso’s painting Seated Nude 1909 Write an essay that close reads the literary text “If I Told Him: A Completed Portrait of Picasso” alongside a close viewing of Picasso’s painting Seated Nude 1909 and in the process of comparing the two works, consider the following questions: How does such a comparison enhance our understanding of what cubism/modernism was trying to accomplish? How do the terms that are well suited for visual material actually enhance our approach to writtern material and vice versa? What does the written work demand of the reader? The visual work of the viewer? How does each work rely on its form to express its content (i.e. what are its radical stylistc departures)? Standard attributes of a good paper: introduction, conclusion, strong arguments, textual evidence, originality, and style.
