Blog Portfolio 3-Cover Entry

Portfolio 3 -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

For those of you who aren't familiar with a blogging portfolio, I have compiled the following list of entries that I thought were important to my blogging development. They date from April 4, 2007 to May 7, 2007.

In this entry, I blogged on the significance of the peacock in "The Displaced Person." This is an example of coverage, timeliness, discussions, and interaction.

Barf?

Wit -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

VIVIAN:...What's left? I haven't eaten in two days. What's left to puke? You may remark that my vocabulary has taken a turn for the Anglo-Saxon. God, I'm going to barf my brains out. If I actually did barf my brains out, it would be a great loss to my discipline. Of course, not a few of my colleagues would be relieved. To say nothing of my students.

I thoroughly enjoyed this play and agree with everyone else who felt this was the best thing we've read this semester. Like Bethany, I couldn't put this down. I absolutely loved Vivian's speaking to the audience in the way that she did. There are so many times that I read something and wish that the characters were speaking to me and explaining their inner-most thoughts to me.

I also really enjoyed the humor in this play. I think the quote above is so characteristic of Vivian. I loved how she referred to her language as taking a turn towards the "Anglo Saxon." It was odd that as soon as I read the word "puke," I immediately thought it was odd and uncharacteristic of Vivian. It was almost as if I knew her.
