First Person POV…

by on Apr.26, 2011, under Uncategorized

The first person POV affects the middle section of the book for me because it makes the reading much more graphic but it also helps to focus the reading.

Paper 2 Peer Workshop

by on Apr.19, 2011, under Uncategorized

In Paper 2 Peer Workshop I noticed this passage:

1) I think the most useful feedback that I could receive from a peer is whether or not the paper makes sense. I want to make sure that the argument that I’ve made is clear and concise because I know I have a tendency to ramble.

2) I feel I offer a honest opinion on a writing. I’m able to read the paper and tell a person “ok, this is good but this section needs work,” and be willing to offer assistance whenever possible. I’m NOT a grammar person so I don’t really look at those things.

Free writing – 5 April 2011

“Yossarian listened to the chaplain’s news with enormous relief. ‘That’s good.’
‘Yes,’ said the chaplain, a pink flush of impish pleasure creeping into his cheeks. ‘Yes, that’s good.’
Yossarian laughed, recalling his first conversation with the chaplain. ‘You know, the first time I met you was in the hospital.  And now I’m in the hospital again.  Just about the only time I see you lately is in the hospital.  Where’ve you been keeping yourself?'”

I liked this passage because it felt as though Yossarian was coming full circle with his deployment.  He was able to see the face of a man that he first suspected was another person “out to get him” in the hospital and later become a common denominator during all his times in the hospital.
