How to Write a Poem in a Time of War by Joy Harjo is a rather emotionally charged piece about the genocide and erasure of indigenous peoples and their cultures. The title itself implies she is trying to teach the reader (insert title). However, throughout the poem she prefaces memories with comments in italics saying,… Read more Reflection on Harjo Poem
When thinking about what I wanted to do a lot of things crossed my mind. I wanted to do another uneasy but my creativity seemed rather blocked since I did not know really what to do besides another game. I came across a lot of posts comparing The Love Suicide at Amijima and Romeo and… Read more Reflection on Project 2
After reading Shakuntala, I was really interested in how fascinated people were (and still are today) at the thought of love at first sight. I always thought Romeo and Juliet was the first major piece of writing to ever really turn people onto this subject/theme, but after reading this play, it’s obvious that’s not the… Read more Love at first sight? Ew… (week 10 reflection)
For the second project I had decided to write a paper about the most interesting character in The Dew Breaker.

For some reason it wouldn’t allow me to sign in and publish my work… Although the third week I felt like everyone was relatively quiet, and some had a bunch to say. I think it is very important as… Read more Week 3 Response- Soyinka’s Death of The King’s Horseman
Equiano’s life narrative combines several different genres, which was something that I found very interesting. Those genres were; a captivity narrative, a spiritual autobiography, a travel memoir, an adventure story, and an abolitionist tract. The early chapters of the narrative describe the healthy, cheerful lives of Africans that the Europeans ripped away. There is a… Read more Weekly Reflection- Equiano
Believe it or not, I’m actually a pretty bad person I think, real deep down. I think it comes out when I get excited actually. I’m punchy and willing to fight about anything. I think that has its positives and negatives, but overall, it does make me an asshole either way. Now, why am I… Read more I’m an asshole and directors seem to know.
Rachel Green Now I know liking Friends is seen to be a very basic thing, and honestly I will be basic if that is what it means. This show was a big part of my childhood and I always found myself relating to the character Rachel. Not only did I love her fashion sense, but… Read more What Fictional Character am I?
