SA #5: More Moore

This assignment is due W 09/23.

1. In "Critics and Connoisseurs," what is "unconscious fastidiousness"?

2. At the beginning and end of "When I Buy Pictures," Moore describes the process of evaluating art in fairly theoretical terms. But the entire middle of the poem is taken up with a list of descriptions of pictures that the speaker might like. Briefly explain what you think that list is doing there, i.e. what role it's playing in the poem. [Notice that I've just given you an observation and asked you to analyze it.]
