Virtues Project

After learning about Franklin’s virtues and his troubles with them, I knew my experience was going to go similarly. We listed are virtues in the importance of affecting other people to affecting ourselves. The one I had the most trouble with was the virtue of silence. I am a generally talkative person that loves to […]

The Dodo’s Conundrum

The Dodo’s Conundrum was an enjoyable poem to read because it was not to hard to decipher. The title is revealing because it means “having wings, but not being able to fly”. This describes the poem well because the author is living in a perfect world but he is still unhappy. It is the concept […]

Poetry…

My negative outlook on poetry hasn’t changed since the unit began. I still think poetry can be lovely but it is so hard to decipher that there isn’t a point to it. I think understanding poetry is the hardest part of the process. The actual writing of poetry was not terrible because I enjoy the […]

However, the story ended up being about the devil’s deals and contains a lesson about greediness. The main character […]
