  • In addition to the understanding that, in Marvell’s “To His Coy Mistress”, minimally built identities behind the poem’s characters adds a desired sense of timelessness to its content, the characters’ simple images prioritize a timely union before deep personal connection, further developing Marvell’s criticism of prolonging love’s partnership w…Read More

  • Hi Alvaro, I’m interested in your post about mental health and its tie to social media. Your points are valid and highly important, as social media use continues to expand and mental illness with it. I resonate especially with your weighing of social media’s pros and cons, for it both “battles loneliness and boredom through easy commu…Read More

  • Hello, Lluvia,
    I appreciate the angle you took in your post in respect to domestic violence in the midst of the pandemic chaos that’s been plaguing the world. Deserving much more attention than it’s given, the issue is of even more urgent concern as our country seeks healing in isolation. I agree with you when you say, “ this pandemic has shown…Read More

    You, Yourself, and Your Being

    In life, artwork, and especially literature, the narrative is often formed to the understanding of good vs. evil. There stands a protagonist and an antagonist—hero vs. villain, one vs. all, or, perhaps, man vs. himself. Personality, too, develops through...

    • Hi Hannah, interesting explanation of Freud’s personality theory! This reminds me of the old “nature vs. nurture” debate and which one affects personality the most. The “id” seems like the nature side, and the super ego and ego fall more on the nurture side. I suppose desire to fit in and meet social standards could be nature as well. Basically, it seems like all these labels for parts of our being are intertwined and hard to identify in reality. It’s also interesting that personality is a mix of the id and superego, moderated by the ego, suggesting that it’s different parts nature and nurture.

    The beauty of language reveals itself in how distinctly it touches a person’s identity in both written and spoken form. Consider Latin, a predominantly written language of which people do not speak; presumed a dead language by many, the...

    • As a bilingual teen, I have started to notice that at home, I speak both languages in a different manners. In english, I notice that I sound high-pitched and more mono-tone. However, in marathi, the language I speak at home, I notice the tone of my voice is very varied, and that I tend to speak sort of happier.

    • Hi Hannah, nice analysis of language and communication. I also think I commented on one of your other posts (cool). In reference to how you said that language helps us understand the people before us, I read a Stephen King thing that called writing telepathy. Here I am, writing this comment at like 1 AM, and you might be reading it days later. He said to imagine a table with a red tablecloth and a cage with a rabbit on it, and there you go, now I sent you a table and rabbit from the past. I thought that was cool. I also thought it was interesting how writing provides an outlet for thoughts where criticisms from other people aren’t a pressing concern. Referencing Rohit’s comment over there, I speak a little Mandarin, and if I were ever to write a note that expressed something important, it would be much less nerve wracking to do it in Mandarin, even if the recipient was fluent. Something about kind of knowing another language makes me feel like it’s less real, which is interesting.

  • Dear Madison,
    I am intrigued by your post because of the equally clear and unique way you described pilgrimage and its relation to time. Your thought process was well organized and enjoyable to read, even more so in how your personal language flowed through.

    One thing you said that stands out for me is: “The benefits of pilgrimages have n…Read More

    The human being is, by nature, a creature of curiosity. We are drawn to what we don’t understand and haven’t seen. We fixate on nature and that of others in hopes of discovering our own. It is in the...

    Dear Kate,
    I am fascinated by your post because of the captivating and informative way you described the various uses and symbols tied to flowers throughout history. Flowers are often an indication of beauty, health, healing, renewal, and power, as you explain. It’s an important reminder, then, to recognize that the colorful plants are g…Read More

  • Dear Maggie,
    I am inspired by your post because of the stance you took regarding technology and its impacts on empathy in our present society. Technology and social media often carry a negative connotation when considering personal interactions and sociability now. Your post gave a refreshing and necessary vision of its helpful outcomes.

  • Dear Catherine,
    I am intrigued by your post because of your take on walking in someone else’s shoes. I’ve long admired this metaphor for empathizing and being able to connect with those outside of yourself, and it is an essential message conveyed in To Kill A Mockingbird. It makes all the more difference that children are used in the est…Read More

  • Dear Drew,
    I am fascinated by your post about the Harlem Renaissance because of the way you portrayed the city of Harlem and the beautiful cultural era that characterizes it. The image complements the vivid and mesmerizing imagery in your account, and the strength and artfulness of your language gives light to the power behind the people of the…Read More
