    I enjoyed class last night (Nov. 25th), it was the first time in a longtime that our whole class was together. It was wonderful to see Nora!

    During the process of putting together my final project the hardest part for me is to get my thoughts together. It seems like my brain is all over the place. I’ll sit down to write, write and realize my…[Read more]

    For class the week of Nov. 11th Dr. K came and spoke to us about her creative writing process. The talk coincided with our Chapter on Creative Writing.

    I really enjoyed Dr. K’s talk. In my undergraduate classes I took a poetry class and soon learned how hard it is to write poetry. I respect anyone who strives to do it and is successful at it. It…[Read more]

    After reading the Auto/Biography chapter I realize that I left a lot out of my Autobiography. However, I don’t find that surprising because I am a very private person. I find it very hard to open up and discuss personal facts about myself.

    In reality I would never, no matter if I became world famous, ever write an Autobiography. It’s just not in…[Read more]

    This week in our class we finished reading “The Song of Solomon” and read the chapter on Interviewing.

    I really enjoyed the chapter on Interviewing and I can see why it was paired with The Song of Solomon. Throughout the last portion of “TSOS,” Milkman is interviewing the Reverend and Susan Byrd and through that process his character seems to…[Read more]

    Lauren, I think you did a wonderful job. It is always nerve wracking to present, and with only one other student I can understand your worry. I could tell you enjoyed the book and I actually enjoyed it more once I heard your thoughts. Fabulous job!

    This past week we read started reading Toni Morrison’s the “Song of Solomon.” I have never read any of Toni Morrison’s work before.

    The first thing I found interesting about Part 1 of the novel is that all of the women in the story have biblical names but not the men.

    In class on Monday we discussed the power of names in the novel and I found…[Read more]

    After presenting on Monday to our class, I wanted to reflect on how I feel it went, what I learned, what I would add or change.

    I believe my leading the class started off rough! I get very nervous presenting in front of my peers and especially my Professors who are much more advanced in the study of Literature than I! I stammered through the…[Read more]

    With our reading assignment of reading Volume 1 of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”, and Textual Analysis in our “Research Methods for English Studies” I noticed how the two correlate. “Pride and Prejudice” refers to the tendency of the characters to judge one another based on preconceptions, rather than who they really are or what they…[Read more]

    After reading the chapter on Discourse Analysis in our “Research Methods for English Studies” book, I realize I have been reading “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” through the lens of Christian discourse. From my first blog post regarding this book I have drawn parallels from Sir Gawain and God or God like qualities.

    Throughout the story…[Read more]

    After reading parts 1 & 2 of Sir Gawain and Visual Methodologies in Research Methods one of the main connections that I see through the semiology of the story Gawain is shown as Christ.

    The book states Gawain has five virtues, these virtues are friendship and fraternity with fellow men, purity and politeness/kindness and pity. Throughout Parts 1…[Read more]

    I have started this blog for EN-501. I started reading when I was very small. My Mother, had six children and every night she would lay on the bed and have each of us read aloud to her. I remember one night I was reading to her and she closed her eyes, I thought she had fallen asleep and I stopped reading. As soon as I stopped reading she opened…[Read more]
