SILC 4310 Professor Jennifer Geer September 11, 2016 Reading Response 2 As a future educator, I want to treat language as strength and not a weakness. Growing up I always got annoyed when other students would always ask me to say something in Vietnamese. However, as the years progressed I learned that their questions come from a place of curiosity, and not hate. I want my students to feel comfortable to discuss their culture and thoughts behind them. I believe that students have the power to ed...

A Study of Structure in The Sound and the Fury
In his novel, The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner employs a unique structural assembly to relay a compelling and complex plot to his readers. As he looked upon this work as a failure in its own right, Faulkner revealed, "...I wrote that same story four times. None of them were right...so I printed it in four sections" (Millgate 89). His intention upon writing this novel was not for the sole purpose of creating such a peculiar organization, but simply to relate a short story of, as he put i...

The English Patient has been referred to as "a poem disguised as a novel." Much emphasis is directed toward Michael Ondaatje\'s language, which "takes center stage, gliding and soaring, drifting into the hidden rooms of his character\'s souls, striking dissonant chords, floating above destinies with Godlike power in one sentence, burrowing into the muddy terror of a bomb crater in the next." The beauty of Ondaatje\'s novel does not arise from its plot, nor from its characterizations, the intri...

Brontes Night Wind
Brontes Night Wind   Any examination of poetry must include an understanding of the voice of the poet. Each poem has a unique voice that reflects the attitude and thoughts of the writer. The choice of words, the patterns of speech, and the specific structures of the poems all have an effect upon the way in which a poem comes across. Any two authors, given the same subject, will create very different poems. For Emily Bronte, the subject of Night Wind, is a conversation between herse...

What is the tragedy of Othello
What is the tragedy of Othello?   Othello is Shakespeares most complete tragedy. It is filled, in my opinion, with some of the strongest characters in all of Shakespeares plays. Othello, the plays main character, is a cultured Moor, nevertheless insecure and hiding behind a facade of Venetian values and customs. He manages to assimilate into Western European society by denying his background and winning the hearts of the masses (and their daughters) with his tales of victory and stri...
