==== Notes on Commonplace Books ====
drawn from [[https://www.scribd.com/document/209639451/The-Commonplace-Book | English 115 Pasupathi]]
Early commonplace books typically contain works by multiple authors, often assembled with no attribution or identification, and relayed without commentary or extensive justification.
Today: Attribute. Name the author and source. Link to it if possible.
Early compilers tended to copy down what they believed contained exemplary wisdom or beauty,
You're selecting for insight.
=== Organizing ===
Early commonplace books ostensibly lack an organizing principal––at least one that readers other than the original owners can easily discern ... those who compiled such books were not making a concerted effort to keep the material ... organized for the consumption of others. In many cases, the readers who kept them simply added passages that struck them as significant at a given moment for reasons they did not see fit to record, copying additional passages later which have no obvious relationship to previous ones.
This idea stands. At the start, there's no need to create an organization.
[There is no need to] begin this project with any specific organizing principle in mind. Although you may ultimately opt to assemble passages that contain, for instance, a particular device or rely on different valences of single word for the Commonplace book you turn in, you should avoid selecting passages based on narrow criteria ... Sometime around our scheduled spring break, you can begin to contemplate what you’ve got with a more specific purpose in mind, surveying your book for patterns or remarkable distinctions in Shakespeare’s language that you believe might be worth exploring further.
Rather than start with an organizing scheme, set things up so you can tag posts. As you collect, you'll start to see categories emerge from your interests and common themes.
=== Outside the course ===
The content of your commonplace book should not simply replicate discussions from class meetings, though you may expand upon those conversations or use them as a point of departure in some cases. The best responses to the assignment, however, will attend to passages from the assigned reading that we did not discuss in class or address in exam questions or on quizzes.
Not just print. Collect passages, images, memes, stuff that connects with our themes and ideas
Use screen shots, pictures of handwritten notes, or images from texts, ..., you may assemble your book by hand or in applications other than word processing programs.

Sometime around our scheduled spring break, you can begin to contemplate what you’ve got with a more specific purpose in mind, surveying your book for patterns or remarkable distinctions in Shakespeare’s language that you believe might be worth exploring further.
Deletions:
First, early commonplace books typically contain works by multiple authors, often assembled with no attribution or identification, and relayed without commentary or extensive justification. Your commonplace book should contain, for the most part, only works by Shakespeare alone (identified according to MLA documentation style) and works assigned in this course. Additionally, the readers who compiled early commonplace books also copied quotations from texts by hand, whereas your modern versions will be compiled in an electronic environment and should be typed.
You may use screen shots, pictures of handwritten notes, or images from texts, provided that you have a good rationale for doing so; keep in mind, however, that I can only appreciate and assess content that I am able to see clearly or read. Along the same lines, you may assemble your book by hand or in applications other than word processing programs. But please note that whether you compose your book “old-school” or on the web as a blog, Tumblr, or Pinterest page, you must also submit the final version as a carefully edited and proof-read text (.doc or .rtf) or PDF file. You must fulfill page count requirements to earn the LT credit and submit the final to the link on Blackboard.
Another difference between your project and the early modern commonplace book is in the distinct objectives I am setting before you. Whereas early compilers tended to copy down what they believed contained exemplary wisdom or beauty, you will be looking for passages that are compelling for the way their diction, form structure, and other aesthetic features shape a work’s content. Thus, your choices need to be guided by more substantive (and more selective) reasoning than simply trying to paste together quotations that sound pretty or seem “true.”
Many early commonplace books ostensibly lack an organizing principal––at least one that readers other than the original owners can easily discern beyond the compilers’ generalinvestmentinwisdomandthepleasingturnofphraseorbonmot. Thefactthatthese books sometimes include miscellaneous and trivial notes suggests that those who compiled such books were not making a concerted effort to keep the material within organized for the consumption of others. In many cases, the readers who kept them simply added passages that struck them as significant at a given moment for reasons they did not see fit to record, copying additional passages later which have no obvious relationship to previous ones. In contrast to these early readers, you will need to exert some kind of coherence onto the contents of your book in your introductory and concluding analytical remarks. Accordingly, you will need to choose passages for inclusion in your final version with an eye for constructing a larger narrative about what your selections have taught you about Shakespeare’s dramatic prose and poetry in his early career.
That said, you need not—and, in fact, should not—begin this project with any specific organizing principle in mind. Although you may ultimately opt to assemble passages that contain, for instance, a particular device or rely on different valences of single word for the Commonplace book you turn in, you should avoid selecting passages based on narrow criteria until we are at least halfway through the assigned reading for the course. For each text we read as a class, you should choose several passages you find noteworthy for their formal and aesthetic features as well as their content. Write briefexplanations ofwhat you find as you read, but continue to compile, reassemble, and review what you’ve added as you read more works. Sometime around our scheduled spring break, you can begin to contemplate what you’ve got with a more specific purpose in mind, surveying your book for patterns or remarkable distinctions in Shakespeare’s language that you believe might be worth exploring further.
Once you have decided on the specific passages you would like to appear in the final version of your commonplace book, you can begin drafting the opening and closing frame. This frame is essentially an introduction and conclusion, but it is the most important part of the assignment because these 3–4 pages will prepare readers to examine the contents of the book and then reinforce specific claims about the material by following their consideration of it with clear and thoughtful analysis. Think of these portions as a guide to your book that deliberately leads readers through the book’s inner-contents with specific claims about what the passages individually and collectively illuminate about Shakespeare’s (dramatic) prose and verse style. Avoid making broad and evaluative claims and try instead to make narrow and concrete claims about how (not how well) language works. For example, rather than claim “The complex uses of anaphora and antithesis make clear that Shakespeare is the best writer of all time,” try “Two of these passages demonstrate Shakespeare’s use of anaphora and antithesis to structure characters’ implicit critiques of figures in power.” Any material you wrote on passages you opt not to include may be placed in between the last page of your analytical frame and the works cited page, labeled as an Appendix.
