Tom Phillips: Explicating A Humument (Step 1)


You will be explicating a page from Tom Phillips' A Humument. Click the link and visit this fascinating website--you could spend days in the world he creates. There are links on the site that introduce the work and give Tom Phillips' biography. There are essays on the work and plenty of stuff to read up on. All of it will be great background knowledge. None of it will end up in your essay.
  • When you've found the page IN THE GALLERY you are going to explicate, post the page number in this comment section of this post to claim it. SORRY, NO REPEATS AND IT IS ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS.
  • Also, I would like you to hyperlink your title to the image you pick. Below is a mini-lesson on how to do this.

Alright, here’s my quick mini lesson on how to hyperlink in comment boxes. Say you want to make a link like
this. All you have to do is type the following into the comment box:

<"a href=http://www.google.com">"this"<"/a">

and get rid of the quotation marks. When you publish it, it will look like:

this

Replace the URL (making sure you have the http:// part) and the “this” and it’s as simple as that.

Remember that the Preview button is your friend. Hope that helps.

For instance, you need to hyperlink your choice. This is page 50. If you click the link, you will see the image.

Oh, I forgot to mention (Kayla, this applies to your page) that "toge" is the "protagonist" of the book, which can only be made by erasing the word "together". I think that's the only think I meant to mention, but forgot or did not post.
