Is this it???????

Jerz: Am Lit II (EL 267): Parker, ''Here We Are''

I think the title it meant to be like: ok we wanted this ever since we met each other. We envisiones rose petals and linen sheets. Trips to the bahamas and suntan lotion. Now Here we Are. Now what??? They are taken aback i think on how suddeny things can shange when people get married. every little thing is a suspicion on her part, and he can stop himself from saying things that dig his hole deeper. interesting take on married life

Jerz: Am Lit II (EL 267): O'Connor, ''Greanleaf''

Mrs. May is miserable and seemingly hopelessly blind to what really mattery in life and in her religion. Her prejudice of people, displayed through her dislike of the Greanleaf family, actually makes me feel sorry for her. Though i will admit she had a funny line when Mr. Greanleaf said "Thank God for everything," and she replied something like, "you should, you never did anything for yourself." That was classic!!!

Conquest of the Unknown

Jerz: Am Lit II (EL 267): Toomer, ''Blood-Burning Moon''
Toomer, ''Blood-Burning Moon''

That's what Bob's desire of Louisa seems like to me. It is just part of every man's desire to conquer that which has eluded him for too long. Climbing Mount Everest, exploring the deep seas, exploring the lush jungles, and in his case, having a sexual relationship with Louisa. It would be that much sweeter if he could beat out Tom for it. Its simply male competition.

On another note i like the quote "Looking at them didnt tell you anything." I particularly like this because we as humans have the tendency to lump groups together. Whites may be viewed a certain way by other people, so may Blacks, Asians, etc. Though in this story the context is toward black people, it can be said for everyone. We tend to think for example, "oh that person is white, so he will do this, or react this way." It can easily be remedied by actually conversing with the person and getting to know the,, however we have that general fear of being shunned. So we just decide to take the easy way out.

Guess who's back!!!!!!!

Jerz: Am Lit II (EL 267): Moore, ''You're Ugly, Too''

Yes, i'm back. well Zoe reminds me of those characters from those sitcoms for middle-aged women like Golden Girls or Sex and the City (not that i know a lot about them) with all these past relationships and her use of sarcasm and witty remarks. I would hate to be in a conversation with her. However she seems to be the type of person who masks her fears and weaknesses with a hard shell. So to men who want to get to know her especially, it would be very hard for them (ecpecially if they are wearing a naked lady suit), and they might feel like she is just being know. It takes a certain type of man to bring out the soft inside that she is trying to hide. maybe he will come, maybe not.

Very Anti-Climatic

Jerz: Intro to Literary Study (EL150): Mansfield, ''The Garden Party''

Trackback Link:

I expected there to b some great revelation or something of greater significance after she visited the victim's family. all she did was cry. no speech on how cruel life is--nothing crazy happened at the house. the ending was so was boring. one would expect that exct thing to happen in real life. So because it was a story i guess I was expecting a more fantastic finish. i was wrong. by the way what is the deal with young girls being attracted to older men in a lot of stories and poems? It happened in The Tempest, this story, and in a poem by i think Maya Angelou. i forget the title but it had to do with her being a young girl staring out the window and longing for the grown men she saw. hmmm...oh yea! it was called "Men". its pretty good

Jerz: Am Lit II (EL 267): Pound, ''In the Old Age of the Soul''

Trying this again to see if it works. I think it is about a man who had a very adventurous life as a younger person and all he has left now are dreams of that life. Its a pretty good poem. Probably what goes on in the twilight years of many people.
