The theme in “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” was that people are going judge you no matter your social status, how you look, and how you act. In this case, the main character is the one being judged intensely, in which he claims he feels he is an insect under a microscope. This poem develops it’s theme by simply telling the story, his struggles of being judged constantly. The theme of “Disillusionment of 10 o’clock”  is that nobody is creative anymore. This theme is developed by saying people aren’t wearing colors, and that everything is bland. The theme of “Anyone Lived In A Pretty How Town” is that people grow up and they die, and people continue on with their days (this probably isn’t right). This theme is developed when they say that people grow up and forget their childhood. They say that people grow up too fast and die too fast without properly enjoying life, and the people around them don’t really care, and that they just continue on with their own struggles. I think the most important and relevant theme that is still prevalent in our lives today is the theme in “Anyone Lived In A Pretty How Town”. Its relevant because it’s true. People die on a day to day basis and the people around them only care for a few days. The one that i liked to read the most was also “Anyone Lived In A Pretty How Town” because of its unique writing style.

I thought that the novel in general turned out to be a good read after all. it was hard to keep up with at times, but i still thought it was a good book in the end. it accomplished its job very well, in regards to the themes in the novel. it was a good book, but i can’t say its the best book ive read. Ive read better books than this one. About the last couple of chapters, what i would change would be huck finn not running away, and getting adopted after all. the most important things to take from this novel is that people change over the course of time, especially when certain things in their life change drastically. For my huck finn project, me and my partner have decided to make a documentary type video on it.I picked this specific project because i dont like going up in front of people to present, and i dont have to if i made a video. Im also really really good at making videos like this so thats a bonus.

The author I chose this quarter for my IR assignment is Claudia Gray. I picked this author because i enjoyed reading one of her books, which was “Defy The Stars”, and i wanted to read the sequel and write an essay on it. I’d have to say that their primary work would be the entire “Defy The Stars” series. It didn’t really impact my decision of doing this author. I kinda had it set in my mind that she was the author I wanted to write my essay on. I’ve only read the two books that are in the Defy The Stars series (the third one hasnt come out yet), so these are two of the interesting books i have read, and an interesting looking book i haven’t read from her yet would be “A Thousand Pieces Of You”. What’s most interesting about all of these books combined is that they’re always breaking stereotypes and cliches. About Claudia gray, i know that shes still alive, and that she has worked on a few Star Wars novels.
