Matt Murphy Non-Film Response February 28th, 2012 In the Basement of the Ivory Tower: Chapter 4 The book, In the Basement of the Ivory Tower, delineates the major flaws in higher education from the biased perspective of a struggling adjunct professor who assumes the pseudonym “Professor X”. In the Professors somewhat cynical, highly sarcastic style of writing, he explains his critical (arguably controversial) point, that not every person is fit for higher education and that America itself is to blame. His misanthropic attitude towards the education system seems to be a product unquestionably trying life experiences, which in turn makes it hard to gage the legitimacy of all his criticism. In chapter 4, The four stages of a plot, Professor X compares his experiences and struggles in real estate to the classic four phase literary form of short stories; exposition, rising action, climax and denouement. He describes his lower class upbringing in the exposition, his slow but steady progression to middle class in the rising action, and his poorly considered big move to a substancial home putting him in major dept and forcing to become an adjunct professor for extra income in the climax.

Terry was described as being the most entertaining when reenacting and he passing away is highly likely the reason they stopped playing.
