EL 336 - Calvino part 1

"The text, when you are a reader, is something that is there, against which you are forced to clash; when someone translates it aloud to you, it is something that is not there, that you cannot manage to touch." (Calvino pg 66)

This book is probably the most refreshing thing about this course. I am really interesting like half of it. The chapters marked as chapters are enticing because it is a play by play of what the experience of reading is really like. I picked this quote because it was the last thing that I expected to find in this book, but I realize that ive thought this way even before taking this class.

The form is certainly unconventionial.

I like that aspect of it as well, the author puts you in the middle of the action.
