Hi Mr. Novak,
We are extremely confused by these jokes(?). Besides Mary Shelley, there didn’t seem to be any connection to the nature or themes of the poems we studied. All the poets in the cartoons sounded alike and didn’t seem to represent each poet’s voice. So the joke must have been about the grocery shopping. And we just don’t get it. Should we fire our teacher?
P.S. We are now reading THE STRANGER. Can you do some cartoons about Meursault shopping for tires?

[…] Immediately after reading these hauntingly tragic poems, I recommend inserting some comic relief into your day by perusing these hilarious ‘Shopping for groceries with the romantic poets’ sketches by cartoonist Jason Novak. http://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2013/10/25/shopping-for-groceries-with-the-romantic-poets/ […]
