Nashe's The Unfortunate Traveller

video

Well, I may not be the most eloquent on video, but I dare say that lack of eloquence is typical when exploring a new medium... or genre, like Thomas Nashe was doing.  Watch the video for more on Nashe then take a look at the full text of his prose narrative The Unfortunate Traveller here.  See if you can spot some similarities with how I deal with being on video and how Nashe dealt with the new genre of prose narrative.

  1. That's not something that I had really thought much about before, the fact that at one time, prose was a new genre. It makes me really want to be more proactive about exploring the potentialities of modern media. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  2. I actually thought you were one of the most polished and even eloquent. Did you practice a script, or read from one, or what? It flowed really well.
