I made it!
This has been one of the most tumultuous semesters in my college career, but I’m finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel! I enrolled in this class based solely on the fact that Prof. Clark was the teacher because she somehow made this left-brained math geek interested in the literary arts. I’ve always enjoyed reading, but a lot of the symbolism and “between the...
Movie vs. Novel
I would be worried about spoiling something here if we hadn’t just read the novel, but one thing I found interesting was the ending of the novel gave me a better sense of the fate of the boy than the movie. When I saw the ending of the movie my boyfriend and I had a discussion of whether or not the people he joined after his father died were actually trustworthy. It was clearer to me in the...
Sherry's Blog!!: The Road: Why I like it. →
steph-clay: msliberty1990: kelleyscoast: sherryhaz: I am really enjoying reading The Road. I think that this is my favorite book out of the books that we read in class. This book is very suspenseful. The way the book is written the things that the boy and his father are doing are really drawn out. Just like what Ms. Clark was talking about in… I have really enjoyed reading The Road as...
Although I haven’t finished it yet, I’m really enjoying The Road. I saw the movie earlier this year, and I think it definitely helps with the imagery. Like Prof. Clark was saying in class, the syntax is very bland and I find my mind wandering while reading sometimes. I’m glad I got the opportunity to read the book because I feel my understanding of the story is enriched by...
Happily never after
Once I understood the link between the stories we read and classic fairy tales, I actually liked them. Generation X had a few connotations, with the astronaut representing the “frog” prince and the three Monroe sisters were reminiscent of the Cinderella story. I haven’t had a chance yet, but I’d like to go back and read them again to see what other kinds of symbolism I...

steph-clay: Ok, as you can see I totally forgot about our first blog post til now, bear with me! English of any sort, contemporary lit, is one of my least favorite subjects. I try not to stay so narrow-minded towards the subject, but topics that are discussed can be so difficult to comprehend. For example,… You weren’t the only one who was late posting! English is also one of my...
Better late than never
So, my boss decided to take a vacation without giving me much notice and I’ve been working double the hours I’m used to. I completely forgot about this assignment until just now because I’ve been so busy. Luckily, I’m pretty familiar with Tumblr so that’s one hurdle I’m already over. Hopefully Prof. Clark won’t reprimand me too harshly. :) After attempting...
