Text Analysis. /x} Like a literature class but slower and more analytical.

oh interesting. it seems like you'd need to read the text in order to analyze it though

<u<; Professor prefers us to already have read the stories and know them yes..but I only ever read a select few plays in high school. :/ Never even read through Romeo and Juliet because it was just so common. Yeah, we read stuff like Pride & Prejudice too, but also A Thousand Splendid Suns, Things Fall Apart and The Importance of Being Earnest. x} Which I guess is also required reading for some?? But not that I've heard from others. :/

<x} YEhP! ahhhh, I read some pretty sweet stuff in high school Lit. And completely missed out on a lot of stuff almost everyone is familiar with. <X} Hehe.
I don't know if I'll add them to my reading list but I might, after reading the synopses, I'm suddenly intrigued. x]

Btw I haven't touched/not too familiar with:
Uncle Tom's Cabin
Dracula
Tom Sawyer
Huckleberry Finn
Lord of the Flies
The Old Man and the Sea
Wuthering Heights
Romeo & Juliet
Hamlet
The Great Gatsby
Where the Red Fern Grows
Little Women
1984
A Tale of Two Cities
The Scarlet Letter
The Count of Monte Christo
The Odyssey
Fahrenheit 451
Julius Caesar
Great Expectations
The Grapes of Wrath
Brave New World
Othello
The Taming of the Shrew
Moby Dick
King Lear
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Oliver Twist
A Doll's House
Gulliver's Travels
Catch 22
The Tempest
...I think that's about it. :/

I've got to read Medea by Euripides for one of my classes, so I hope it's juicy and ridiculously dramatic. x}

I've read Hamlet several times, it's not a bad play though it's long. I would recommend reading it if you have the time. I took a course on Shakespeare in Uni, and then read Hamlet for another course.

Oh! A list! Me too!

Uncle Tom's Cabin - heard of it but haven't read.
Dracula - own it but haven't read.
Tom Sawyer - Wishbone did it.
Huckleberry Finn - Or he did this one. Not sure.
Lord of the Flies - Read in school. I don't like it.
The Old Man and the Sea - Did not read it in school. Know of it.
Wuthering Heights - Know of it. Supposed to be slightly Gothic.
Romeo & Juliet - Read for uni. Not my favourite.
Hamlet - Read several times. Seen one the Kenneth Brannagh movie.
The Great Gatsby - know of, never read.
Where the Red Fern Grows - Read this recently. Wonderful book, oh dear god the feels.
Little Women - Saw a cartoon when I was itty bitty and only remember a little bit of it. There's a character named Beth.
1984 - Know of, never read.
A Tale of Two Cities - Wishbone did this too.
The Scarlet Letter - Know of, not read.
The Count of Monte Christo - Wishbone, and saw a movie.
The Odyssey - Wishbone, abbreviated book, part of a miniseries.
Fahrenheit 451 - hear of, not read.
Julius Caesar - same
Great Expectations - same but movie.
The Grapes of Wrath - same
Brave New World - skimmed in uni. Wasn't impressed.
Othello - didn't actually read this one.
The Taming of the Shrew - or this one.
Moby Dick - just a couple movies.
King Lear - nope, not read.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - haven't read this either.
Oliver Twist - Wishbone and Disney
A Doll's House - Hey! I haven't heard of this one!
Gulliver's Travels - Cartoon when I was about 6.
Catch 22 - Heard of, memorized the cover, haven't read.
The Tempest - Read in high school. Not bad.


I heard of all but one! Some only because of a TV Jack Russel.

Seriously though, my degree is in English Lit so I'm happy to natter about literary things. What are you supposed to get from your textual analysis?

The Importance of Being Ernest is pretty short, and pretty funny. Seems like it would lend itself well to text analysis.

I'm going to read Medea and have a laugh at the sheer ridiculous tragedy of the dramatic ancient greek plot. <x} Maybe I'll write up a funny summary here.

Okay, so this is how Medea went down. /x}
(A little background...)
So if you recall, or are unfamiliar, Jason and the Argonauts went on a quest for the Golden Fleece in a land called Clochis.
The high priestess and princess of Clochis was a girl called Medea and though everyone saw Jason as an intruder and thief after their golden fleece, she wanted to help him.
So she did, and she and Jason fell in love, and in order to leave with him she had to kill her own brother and leave her father's lands to escape.
So Jason and Medea left with the golden fleece and returned to Greece where she helps Jason by getting the two daughters of Pelias, Jason's scheming Uncle, (who was king of Iolcos) to kill their father. And as a result they were kicked out of the kingdom, and so they settled down in Cornith where they lived happily ever after together.

(Okay, now this is how the story of Medea went down...)




















And, welp! That was Medea. *shrug* <x'D

Just finished reading A Doll's House. O_O And boy, was it interesting. <-< It kind of reminds me too much of how I went about things in keeping up intimate relationships.. But I did enjoy it and the ending! o-o I think at the time and place it was written in, it was seen as almost blasphemous and definitely controversial. Think like mid-late 1800's. :[ And in Norway/Denmark/Sweden/Netherlands. It's considered to be a really good play because it sparked a change in the traditional roles of men and women, focusing on the marriage aspect of it. >:/ Like, I know women back then were like considered 1/2 a person, but damn, I couldn't believe everyone was okay with and was not okay with.
It's a play by Henrik Ibsen who wrote a lot of about the hypocrisies of society, and what at the time might have been considered an attack on women, and their sacred duties to their husband to bear children and to their children to raise them into good people, is actually now seen today as the liberation of women, from their caged and load-heavy lives as wives and mothers, and nothing else, unable to escape blame, abuse, and shame.

:] It was a good read. It's really calm and fluttery in the beginning and when things begin to escalate further and further, it gets heavy yo. <u< I think it was also made into a movie in the 70's. :/ I gotta go see if I can find it and watch it. It's for homework, but I'm glad I finally got around to reading something again after Medea. <x}
