Blog Portfolio 3

Portfolio 3 -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

This is my final blog for this semester. I must say, that the inhibitions and doubts I had with blogging, are now gone. I find it to be an awesome learning tool as well as a way for me to get my thoughts and view points in order on what I just read. It has been a great semester filled with wonderful stories and some very interesting dialogue.

Coverage: Here are the last few blog entries I've done this term in Intro to Lit

Jumpin to Conclusions

Card, Ender's Game Finish -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"We did not mean to murder, and when we understood, we never came again. We thought we were the only thinking beings in the universe, until we met you, but never did we dream that thought could arise from the lonely animals who cannot dream each other's dreams. How were we to know? We could live with you in peace. Believe us, believe us, believe us."

I think its really sad that the bugger invasion was greatly misconstrued, and that had anyone bothered to try to understand them, they could have avoided the entire war. And Ender could have possibly led a "normal" life. its funny how most fight in life happen because of a certain misconception, it also speaks of how quick we are to judge.

A Necessary Evil

Card, Ender's Game Ch 1-6 -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"Thank you for this Peter. For dry eyes and silent weeping. You taught me how to hide anything I felt. More than ever, I need that now" (33).

I chose this quote because I find it interesting that in Ender's world and even in our world today, lying is a very useful, and often necessary skill to have. I say necessary because Ender is in a very peculiar situation to where it suits him to be able to lie and hide what he's really feeling because any sign of weakness or doubt on his part can lead to his very death. It says alot about society today and what actual constitutes as a weekness. Is it caring about someone or second guessing yourself?
