The Ending of Sound and The Fury

Well the ending wasn’t at all satisfying as I hoped it would be. After having all the other brother’s narrating their point of view, I was really hoping we would hear from Caddy. I really ended up liking her character and wanted to find out more about her, but nope Faulkner disappointed me. Instead he […]

The Evil Jason

  Oh Faulkner, at least this section wasn’t as complicated as the other two but I found it too long and boring. I don’t know, maybe because I was disgusted by Jason’s character that I really didn’t care what was going on? Oh and his mother, don’t get me started withthat lady. She is just unbelievable. […]

If it had been cloudy…what would have happened Quentin?

JUNE SECOND 1910 was another twisted section Faulkner had me going back and forth constantly to figure out what was going on. I loved Benjy’s character in APRIL SEVENTH 1928 but Quentin in the other hand is one complicated young man. I didn’t quite notice him in the first section but this section (second) of Sound […]

Benjy – The Sound and The Fury

Thanks to Tuesday’s class discussion on the book, I was able to differentiate the characters and the time setting of each passage. At first I was confused with all the past and present settings constantly changing but knowing what characters are in the present and who aren’t made it more simple. Still a very complicated read […]

The Sound and The Furry

The Sound and The fury is another one of them books that have you going back and forth constantly. As I began reading it, I didn’t understand what was going on. It had to do something with a fence and looking for a quarter. At first I thought they were boys but then discovered they […]

I wasn’t able to read Persepolis but did see the film. I watched it with my sister’s who are a fan of Anime films and they pretty much enjoyed it more then me. I liked it alot but not as much as they did. I have read a couple of pages from the book but […]

Islamic Revolution

Before reading Persepolis, I  really didn’t quite know about the Islamic Revolution. I knew bits and pieces but not alot. Such an interesting read, I started to do a bit of research on why the Islamic Revolution occured. The year was 1979 when a violent overthrow of the Islamaic governemnt occured. To make it short, […]

Hemingway

What makes Hemingway, Hemingway? When the question was first asked, to be honest I didn’t know who Hemingway was. Its ashamed since everyone in class knew who he was, I was probably the only one who never read anything by him. I did know he was a famous writer but since this class, I wasn’t […]

The Waste Land (part II)

During class our professor encouraged us to re-read The Waste Land, and once I heard that I was devastated, like I mentioned before I found The Waste Land sooooo boring. Although she did go over the poem and brought some light to it, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to read it again on […]

The Waste Land

I honestly didn’t prepare myself for this poem. Although this entry is late (sorry), I am going to pretend this is my first entry for me reading The Waste Land. Last entry I did was about me complaining about T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and how much I hated it, but […]
