Defining a writer’s project

  • What is the writer trying to do
  • Keywords
  • Examples from the text

For example: Berger and Hals

  • Ways of Seeing (1972), video, Episode 1, min 22–26
  • Ways of Seeing (1972), book,  pp. 11–16

Fastwrite: “That is mystification.” What does Berger mean by this? In your own words, explain how (according to Berger) the critic “mystifies” our response to Hals’ paintings.
