    A few questions about the Radiohead article...

    "their tone oddly reminiscent of Syd Barrett's solo outpourings". A Google search told me that he's from Pink Floyd, but not what his solo songs were about???? Anyone know what they were about?

    "Fitter Happier" - what's this Radiohead song about?

    "Interspersed among such writings would be quotes from Dante's Inferno, John Pilger's Hidden Agendas and... Miles Davis' book [Just For My Own Amusement]" - what are those references for?

    I hope we get some Nirvana lyrics.

    what was that Kezzer???? >.>

    pathetic fallacy
    (Also known as Poetic Fallacy.) A term coined by English critic John Ruskin to identify writing that falsely endows nonhuman things with human intentions and feelings, such as "angry clouds" and "sad trees." The pathetic fallacy is a required convention in the classical poetic form of the pastoral elegy, and it is used in the modern poetry of TS Eliot, Ezra Pound, and the Imagists. (See also Pastoral and Imagism.)

    Syd Barrat used to be in Pink Floyd yes!

    Erm jsut a little point......Text 4 is the only text really not to include description of was it is like to be "mad", or how it feels...

    If that makes any sense... :confused:

    I think one thing to note between the Radiohead and Bob Monkhouse is that the BM seems to have a structure....Radiohead doesn't- it seems to go between being an interview to a commentary on his life and then a bit about psychological stuff...very weird!

    no way am I reading another word of that rubbish :P good link though Lisa ^^ sure non-lazy people will find it useful lol XD

    some important stuff:
    -In every text family/friends contribute to the mental illness! (Present in all except 4)
    -Are different states of mind good/bad in the text? (different in all of them - compare!)
    -How is the person with the abnormality treated? why? (different in all - compare!)
    -How does the time period effect the text? (yellow pages is a good one here!)

    Thanks Aplin

    I mainly need to get my random notes in order and make sure I understand everything!

    The fact that we only have 5 texts worries me....they could give us a stinker of a question- something not expected and/or give us 2 horrendous unseens

    syd barett was a member of pink floyd, a great band by the way.
    ithe link to critical approaches is that he became mentally unstable during his career with pink floyd. the link is insanity as its reflected in his music.

    hope this helps.
