Charles Kane

My reaction throughout the entire film, Citizen Kane, was: I don’t get it. I really didn’t understand the point of the film until the end. But even near the end I still don’t know why we watched it. The movie was based on a guy that owned a newspaper company and had a lonely and…

Blog 21

The themes of the three works we read in class includes society and being a social outcast. In “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”, the theme is shown through a man who is too insecure to feel like he has a chance with the girl he wants. He’s too scared to talk with her…

Frog Blog 🐸💨

I did not like the short story at first. The way the first page was written confused me greatly. I don’t really understand the point of the story or the moral. Apparently the moral was “don’t judge a book by the cover” but I feel like the way the narrator judged Wheeler was such a…

Satire(d)

What is the difference between satire and humor…? Is satire just ironic humor? I still don’t understand. If yes, then I guess I experience satire everyday. I’m obviously very familiar with humor. I think I’m the most hilarious person ever if I’m being honest. humor I enjoy the most is self-deprecating humor, surreal humor, and…

3Q IR

The book I read this quarter is called “Sold” by Patricia McCormick. I chose this book because my friend (Lilly) recommended it to me and said I would like it. Also because Mr. Burrell said he saw a short film at a festival on this book and he said it was very good. I normally…

Vertigo was awful

Vertigo might be one of the most bland films I’ve ever seen. The film was life changing, in a bad way. Having to sit through that film for the past week seriously decreased my quality of life. Initially, when you said you got up and left the class after this film ended, I expected it…

Song of Myself

My initial reaction to the work was confusion. I knew he was talking about grass and himself but he was using some weird symbols that I didn’t automatically make connections to. This is why I don’t like analyzing poetry. My initial thoughts on our sections was that this man loves grass and dead people. In…

Civil Disobedience

Perhaps government would be better if it wasn’t as restrictive. If government governed less, I really don’t know how people would act. What would that even entail? Less enforcement? Less laws? Less punishment?… Maybe they would act better if they weren’t as controlled by the government and wouldn’t feel the need to rebel. But maybe…

A Transcending Today

Transcendentalism sure is something… This stuff is really reminding of my psychology class and I’m tired. Thoreau and Emerson have some very similar ideas and views in these excerpt. Both of these excerpts include nature and realizing the importance of what the Earth is for. They both think nature should be incorporated into your life…

Debate

My opinions has not really changed over the course of the unit.  If anything, I like debating even less than I did before. I avoid confrontation like the plague, I despise fighting and think it doesn’t solve anything. Neither side changes their opinion on the issue so whats the point of arguing about it? Arguing…
