An alternate question for 1-14-2008

Here's an alternative to the question for this week (1-14-2008). Look again at Klimt's portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. We attempted to characterize this woman in class last Wednesday. (Please note: we were attempting to describe verbally the characterization Klimt had already completed visually.) Compare Musil's characterization of "Bonadea" with Klimt's portrayal of Adele. Could they be the same person? What character traits are similar/different? Is it possible to compare across mediums in this way?
