ENG 232 World Literature

1)After viewing the video on the history of science fiction literature (in “Beginnings”), write about the most striking element of science fiction literary history that you saw in the video, responding to the following questions: What age in science fiction history (and/or writer from that age) grabs you the most? Why? Then, do some informal research on that time period in science fiction history, giving us at least three facts that the video doesn’t include. Be sure to include the source of your information in some way (you can simply give the title of the website or book in parenthesis at the end of your post)

2)After viewing the video on the definitions of science fiction and reading Gwyneth Jones’ essay, “The icons of science fiction” (both found in “Beginnings”), respond to the following questions, using complete sentences:
What are the three criteria of science fiction? In other words, what should science fiction do?
What is the difference between “hard” science fiction and “soft” science fiction?
According to Gwyneth Jones, what is the commonality that science fiction writers share? In other words, what unites “every kind of sf story?”
What does Jones mean by the “icons” of science fiction? Originally, what did the word “icon” mean? How has it been adapted for science fiction?
She was referring to Jones’ essay, name three icons that she mentions, and explains their significance in your own words.
