Art and Literature are bound together in several ways. Great works of art have inspired great works of literature, great works of literature have inspired art, and together art and literature have simultaneously represented similar movements. Art and literature can be seen weaving around each other, influencing one and another, and being used as a tool to teach students about liberal arts and humanity. Although the works I have selected range from several genres and five centuries, they are related because they refer to great works of literature. All of these works have been used in my literature classrooms as tools to understand specific works or movements. No matter how different they are, they aid in understanding the written world through visual imagery. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3wz9wg0Dos The video that I have chosen shows an artist going through the steps of creating an expressionistic work. This was important to me because the steps that he was taking reminded me very much of the steps that I as an English literature major were taught in creative writing when working through drafts of a written work. It also shows expressionism which is still a very popular style and can be seen in my favorite writings, particularly great American plays.
