Today, only hearing my voice–
forcing it so.. And
No,
the tape isn’t acknowledged.
Instant slip, rejection,
seeing edge, but I
Can fly. Rested in recipe,
run to a bullion bay, equation
evasion. More rhythmic than
expected number lanes.
It’s all mine, ours. Page exposed–
storm, disrupt, louder. What can They
do?
Shape anew. Elevation, mountain. Post.

What did the Plath poem I shared with you all mean, in your mind/”opinion”?  What is she saying?  What’s her attitude?  Please cite evidence from the poem to support your argument.  And with equal emphasis, how does it make YOU feel?  The strongest entry is promised to enjoy an elevated reward, please know…

Cheers–

ENGLISH 5– agenda for 2/19/14

18 Feb

We’ll start with addressing the mentality in Bell Jar, both with the characters, setting, and Plath herself.

Then, we’ll explore psychoanalytic theory, it’s application and usefulness in a text like this.

I’ll also be revealing your scores for the last blog response, then talk a little about what’s ahead in the term.

Hope you all had a nice restful 3-day weekend, and I’ll see you tomorrow..
