336 - Elbow

Agenda Item - Page 151 - the three images Elbow uses to match his three claims.

I highly enjoyed how Elbow concluded his article. The three ways he showed this writer and how she attacks her writing, really show that parts of forming oral speech continue into the writing process. I agree with Elbow that the argument speech vs. text should be changed. It should be changed to what can we do with speech and writing in different ways. Though there were valid differences and similarities spotted in this artilce, I think that the argument of which is more promenant to society is overdonw. Im sick of it. Is there anything else we can do as writers, to change up either field? If one leads to another over and over again, there has got to be a way to change the cycle. This reading was a refreshing change to the old school outlook on this subject.
