Article by artist Mark Vallen.
Below you'll find a sampling of my coursework and the major papers I've written over the course of my studies, both as a graduate student in German Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madisonand also as an undergraduate at Pomona CollegeCalifornia.
Many of the papers are in English, but some are in German -- feel free to run them through a Google Translator to make them even more incomprehensible! The papers marked with a blue ribbon are the ones I feel demonstrate the best of my writings.
On the opposite end of the spectrum are those papers written in German from my early undergraduate years -- please recall that I'd only had three years of highschool German when I started writing those, so forgive any horrendous errors.
I'd like to think my German has improved exponentially since then. Please feel free to read and -- if you wish -- to cite or quote these papers in any way you wish, but remember that they are my own work, and I ask that you respect the copyright on them.
If you have any questions or comments, let me know! Ich hoffe, dass meine Deutschkenntnisse sich seit damals viel verbessert haben. Teilen Sie es mir bitte mit, wenn Sie Fragen oder Bemerkungen haben.

The Doctrine of Fascism was written during a turbulent period in the social and political history history of Italy. It had been a decade since the Fascist March on Rome, but the Fascist movement lacked a coherent identity.
Fascism was largely a by-product of a generation being tested in war. The backbone of the resistance against Franco was the Spanish working class, especially the urban trade union members. In the long run — it is important to remember that it is only in the long run — the working class remains the most reliable enemy of Fascism, simply because the working-class stands to gain most by a decent reconstruction of society.
As a nine year old in , I cracked open an art book presenting the works of Salvador Dalí, and became transfixed by his painting, Soft Construction with Boiled Beans .
