Calvino, through Ch 6

These three chapters seemed the most chaotic so far, mainly because the killing in chapter 5, which was completely absurd, lol. As I’m reading I’m starting to catch on to the extra excerpts following the chapters. Calvino is allowing us to get a taste of …

Calvino, through Ch 3

For starters I loved how Calvino started off the book as if he was watching us read. ┬áHe wants us to prepare ourselves to indulge in the mysteries that lie within this book and the funny thing about it, is that I was actually making myself comfortable as I was …

Eco: Seventh Day

Reading the seventh day I knew Jorge had some involvement in the murders because of him overhearing William talk to Severinus about the book. Back tracking to the first three days, Jorge was a very angry person and a lot of things upset him; mainly when people were factually incorrect. …

Eco: Sixth Day

Williams dream was completely insane to me, but it definitely reminded me a lot about the bible. It was clever of Eco to have him be in the midst of the church, then fall asleep as they’re singing and have that crazy dream. Being able to explore William’s dream and …

Eco: Fifth Day

Eco definitely planned the fifth day out to be the most exciting, dramatic and mind blowing. He included so many details that made you wonder who the murderer could have been, especially during the scene when William and Also had stepped out the chaotic meeting and talked with Severinus. During …

Why We Forget Most of the Books We Read

Eco: Fourth Day

When reading the fourth day I was noticing that they spoke about love a lot more than they usually would or at all honestly. I didn’t know that monks weren’t allowed to seek love from women, I thought they were all married and the wives were just nonexistent to the …

Eco: Third Day

Reading through the third day a few things stood out to me and one of those things was the fact they were talking about Jews. On page 206 Salvatore said, “…They had been told that the Jews were the enemies of Christianity” which threw me off because I’ve just been …

Page 6 talks about what is writing and this reminded me of the video we had recently watched about cursive writing mainly because of the images on the page. Looking at each picture and reading the captions, it shows the evolution of writing from one century to the next, which …
