Miller, Resurrection Blues 2 -- Jerz: Intro to Literary Study (EL150)

I really liked this read, it was interesting yet inevidable. I commented on Kevins blog and gave an example of Christ in the modern world. What if he were to relive his resurrection? What if he truely did EXIST? The "Messiah" in this book was a peacemaker.
I want to announce my thoughts as i read, when Jeanine jumps out of the window. Well at first i thought that she was just another girl in society that had't received enought attention, so whats the result you ask? Jump out the window of course! After i continued to read; i soon found that she is a bit more than just an acquaintance to Jack, one could say an intimidating gender. Jack can be compared to Jesus, he is a sin saver. A step into the light of a new realm. Anyway, i think that Jeanine partially jumped to give herself to the "Messiah".

I chuckled when Em and Felix were out to dinner and Emily mentioned her and her partner "making love". Guessing Felix may have been a bit shocked, considering women are supposed to be proper and set the rules of ettiquette. This is (I think) the best quote in this play. "One needs it when one is not marvelous to look at." Well isnt that an everyday life situation. You know boyfriend and girlfriend oh well, i wont get into that now. But at any rate, that comment is an EGO KILLER, a confidence crusher to say the least.

As I was commenting on Kevin's blog I answered his question. "While reading this play, I asked myself this question: Does money takes the lead over morals and justice?" Definitely. Any boss: past, present, or future will just be a money- hungry pig (no offense to anyone here who is the boss of someone). That was a general statement. We are without a doubt in a "media-saturated" materialistic, money-hungry world.
