This test consists of 1 (of 3) essay topics.

Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Paul Klee, a painter, teacher and cartoonist noted that, "Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible." What does he mean by this. Is he right? Present your case.

Essay Topic 2

McCloud says that with comics, if all you see is ink and paper, what you see is seldom what you get. Instead he notes that, "In the end, what you get is what you give." What does he mean by this statement? Can you see this concept applying to other situations outside of comics?

Essay Topic 3

McCloud notes that "We see ourselves in everything. We assign identities and emotions where none exist. And we make the world over in our image." Personification is a literary device that demonstrates McCloud's statement. Think of a time where you personified an inanimate object or abstract notion. What was it? What human attributes did you give to it?
