All three poems are the same in a way. They all have a darker meaning to them and they hit you kind of weirdly. Mcgarry usually has always, at least for my class, picked the darker poems and stories almost like Mr. Moser did. Yet again I didn’t understand these poems but I didn’t hate them, they were actually pretty good from what I read and understood. All these poems have basically the same theme. Its that we all follow each other and we are not our own person. We always follow in other peoples footsteps, like there is only one path and we all walk down the same one. In the first poem we read “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” The poet describes how everyone goes about their day the same and they dont change or switch it up. The second poem is the same theme but in a different way. They talk about bedtime and what they’re going to wear and while they can all wear a lot of different bed clothing, they all wear the same thing. The third poem I didn’t really understand so I cant say that I knew what it was about, But I read some other peoples blogs and they describe it pretty clearly more than what we talked about or the poem in general. The poem I found most relatable to our society today was the second poem. It just perfectly describes how everyone does not have their own path in life, we always follow in each others footsteps. I liked the first poem because I could understand it number one and number two because I can enjoy it while im reading it and most people know I hate poems. I found the first poem to be more clear than all the others, although the second one was not that bad I just prefer the easier poems as probably most people in the world. I finished all my other questions so im trying to use words to fill up the blog. This wasn’t as a bad of a poem as people thought.

I really really did not like this novel because of how hard it was to read. Usually the books that I read are in English and not whatever that slang is called. It was not better than expected because I really thought it was going to be a good book since my mom said it is a very good book. Clearly, she was wrong. However I think the book did accomplish it’s job with the theme because throughout the entire story it didn’t go from one problem to another without sticking to the same theme. If Twain wanted to go onto another theme he would have ended the original one and start a different one. I think it accomplished it’s theme very well. I think this novel didn’t compare to any of the novel I’ve read since I liked most of them. I honestly would have liked it if they didn’t talk like that. I thought the end of the book was pretty uneventful. I would have changed it to be more interesting or more suspenseful. There wasn’t really much going on towards the end of the book and I feel like Twain just crammed everything in the end of the book. The most important things for the reader to take in while reading this story is that you should never be rude or mean there is just no point. The novel still relates to life today because people will always have different opinions than you there are just different ways to take it on.

This book was very annoying to read overall. It was hard to understand the people talking because they talked so dumb. It literally pissed me off trying to read it haha. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do though. The most important chapters of this book was when Huck explained to the King and Duke that he was leaving so they didn’t think he was trying to betray them. The king confesses to hiding the money after being choked. After that Huck tells Jim the entire story. The new character we meet is Silas Phelps. He is introduced into the story because he is the “new” owner of Jim. The duke sold Jim to the Phelps’ farm. Another person who is reintroduced is Tom sawyer. He get reintroduced because he was going to visit family to get out of the small town where everything reminded him of his best friends “death”. (he wasn’t really dead) The Phelps farm is very disorganized. They have terrible security and appear dumb because of how they keep Jim. Jim is locked up by putting hand cuffs under the bed post. He can easily just lift up the bed and run. I think that at the end of the story Jim is going to die. I dont know why I think it is going to happen but I am pretty confident that he or Huck is going to die. Someone is going to pass I feel it! I really disliked this book because you cannot figure out what they are saying if you are a fast reader. You need to give the book your full attention and it is hard because you really need to focus on what you are reading and if you are busy it can become difficult. The plot of the story is good I have nothing against that but if they worded it right, it wouldn’t be a problem. I give this book a 5.5/10 just because of the wording. Im excited to see what happens in the end. I have no more stuff to type so im just going to bull crap this until it hits 350.

Some important things of this chapter are that we found out where Jim was sold. The Duke and King betrayed Huck and sold Jim just for their benefit. We meet Toms family members, who they are and what they do. We learn more about Huck and Tom together because Tom wants to help free Jim, and back then it was known as a wrong doing if a white kid helped a black slave. Apparently you would go to hell. We also learn about how Huck really cares for Jim, and he starts to become more mature to me as we go along in the book. Huck has further development because he really shows us he is growing up because he cares about Jim, again a black slave who you “shouldn’t” like back then. About the Phelps farm.. they have no security and they seem dumb in a way because the way that they kept Jim was hooked to a bedpost which is not very clever. I think towards the end Jim and Huck will live together and live a better life far away from the town and people in the state.
