What are humans capable of!?


Foster (6-9, 11, 14) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"Violence is one of the most personal and even intimate acts between human beings, but it can also be cultural and societal in its implications. It can be symbolic, thematic, biblical, Shakespearean, Romantic, allegorical, transcendent. Violence in real life just is."

People change with time!


O'Connor, ''A Good Man is Hard to Find'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"These days you don't know who to trust," he said, "ain't that the truth?"

Reflection: Symbolism within time

In your Opinion!


Foster (Ch 12 and Interlude [p. 183]) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"When someone asks about meaning, I usually come back with something clever, like
"Well, what do you think?"

A Walk in Time!?

Glaspell, ''Trifles'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

County Attorney (facetiously). Well, Henry, at least we found out that she was not going to quilt it. She was going to--what is it you call it, ladies!
Mrs. Hale (her hand against her pocket). We call it--knot it, Mr. Henderson.

Quest or Not!?

Foster (1-3, 5) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

Is every trip really a quest?...
Once you figure out quests, the rest is easy.

Marjorie never knew what was coming...


Fitzgerald, ''Bernice Bobs Her Hair'' (online) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"Bending over she found one of the braids of Marjorie's hair, followed it up with her hand to the point nearest the head,
and then holding it a little slack so that the sleeper would feel no pull, she reached down with the shears and severed it."

Communicating and being known for a lifetime!?

Schackner, ''Freedom of speech redefined by blogs'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"I remind students that their blogs are public," he said. "Someday, they'll be in a job applicant
pool, and a potential employer will run their name through Google, and the angry ranting
Web log they wrote at age 17 will turn up."

This quote was important to me becasue this is the first time that I am creating a blog. I think that every student that enters a blog should remember that anyone can see it. If you submit a passage that is negative then it may potentially prohibit you from getting a job. On the other hand, if you write a great review or article then it may be a positive influence when trying to get a job.

Where will I get a Job?
