Coverage: Here are all the blog entries I have posted.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/more_than_just_fan-fiction.html

This entry talks about some of my fellow classmates inaccurately describing Goodnight, Desdemona as fan-fiction and the frustration it caused me.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/denounce_thine_author_and_embr.html

This entry talks about author intent and how, even if Macdonald did not intend her play to be a feminist work, it is up to the interpretation of the general public whether it is or not.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/wordsworths_words_get_off_your.html

This entry talks about the slight hypocracy of Wordsworth's The Tables Turned.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/frosts_desert_places_a_severe.html

This entry mentions the undertones of existential questions that are brought up by Frost in Desert Places.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/roberts_ch_12.html

This entry looks at Chapter 12 of Writing About Literature.

Blog 1 about The Quick & the Dead: Introduces my theory about what the introductions at the beginning of each book could mean...

Blog 2 about The Quick & the Dead: Continues to delve into my theory about the introductions at the beginnings of the books... 

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/lots_to_talk_about.html

Blog 3 about The Quick & the Dead: Explains that my theory is basically unresolved... as is SO much else at the end of this book... 

Depth: These are the entries in which I did outside research or developed my ideas more fully.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/more_than_just_fan-fiction.html

This entry represents a more in-depth blog because I had to really think about the fan-fiction that I have read, such as all the novels based off of Star Wars and the Halo games and compare it to what Macdonald did in Goodnight, Desdemona.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/frosts_desert_places_a_severe.html

I had to read this poem several times through before realizing the slight existential question that is brought up and I am rather proud that I came up with that (messages in poetry usually elude me).

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/could_it_be.html

I thought I had some rather clever predictions about what the introductions to the books in The Quick & the Dead could mean... but the author never bothered to explain them...

Discussion and Interaction: Examples of Conversations and "Creative Differences" between my classmates and me.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/10/john_crimmins_resurrected.html

Above is a link to Jess Orlowski's blog about how John Crimmins was a somewhat Christ-like manifestation in The Quick & the Dead. While no one responded to the comment I posted as it was a little late in the game, Jess and I did discuss it and we decided that it was a valid point so I am putting it in this section.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CarissaAltizer/2009/10/missing_parent_problem_increas.html

Here, Carissa and I discuss my outrage at the abruptness of the ending of the story.

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/10/the_art_of_drowning.html

A rather humorous discussion regarding Darleen in The Quick & the Dead.

Timeliness: Here are the entries I submitted on time. 

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/CodyNaylor/2009/10/lots_to_talk_about.html

Blog 3 about The Quick & the Dead: Explains that my theory is basically unresolved... as is SO much else at the end of this book... 

Xenoblogging:  

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JessicaOrlowski/2009/10/the_art_of_drowning.html

In the above entry, Jess Orlowski states: "Was Corvus saved from drowning and death, or was Darleen trying to save her from something else entirely (namely, a life of pain)?" However, after the comments that Karyssa and I left, she seemed to change her tune. It does not appear that Jess changed her actual entry, but it is nice to see that the conversations about the blogs can have and affect on the writer.

Wildcard:

I cannot stress enough how proud I was of myself for catching the existential reference. As I mentioned, messages in poetry usually elude me and it upsets me that no one read this blog (but that was my fault because it was a very late entry...).
