Portfolio 4:

It looks like the class is coming to a close and we all get a nice long break!  Sorry guys, unfortunately I won't be blogging to you about whatever book I happen to be reading, so don't check my blog for updates ;)  It's been a great semester and I look forward to seeing you in the spring.  Merry Christmas!


Coverage: I wrote a response for every article, poem, and work of literature that we have read thus far.

Chekhov -- Also spelled Tchekhov. Who knew? -Getting ready for my presentation

1836 CSI Screenplay - A look at "Porphyria's Lover"

Sorry, no convenient restrooms, you have to pee in the woods.  English majors aren't exactly taking the easiest roads to job security...

Missing the Eight Count Dancing and poetry, two things I love -- but will I ever be able to actually count the beats for a formal dance or hear the stress and unstress of iambic pentameter?

Is "A Christmas Carol" an Original Idea? My church has always explained sinners as men and women who carry around sins like chains dragging behind them.  Did Dicken's classic give them the simile?

New Movie Trailer Yet another A Christmas Carol in theaters.  Check it out!

Another Scrooge/Sinner Comparison Why exactly did Scrooge change his ways?

Papa Don't Preach, I'd Rather Hear a Story. Growing up surrounded by symbolism and allegories and why we need them.
