Ayce Pollard and the significance of logos and advertizing in pattern recognition
This paper is on the book pattern recognition by William Gibson. I have done a rough draft and have chosen to do the paper on the character cayce pollard from the book. I want to talk about the significance of of her character as an advertizing consultant and further discuss her allergen to logos throughout the novel. I also want the paper to discuss how particular she is about her clothing and her role in the advertising world. I also want to include some information about the history of logos and advertising and then tie it back into the book. I thought it could end with Cayces ability to spot logos and trends and the significance of logos throughout the book. I am going to attach the sequence order I came up with, but it can be put into the order that is most appropriate. I would also like to some quotes from the book to be cited thoughout the paper and a couple from other outside sources. You can use the book as a reference and there is also an online disscussion board from this book as well that can be used. I do not have the pdf file so I am not sure what to do about that.
