In class this week we had a very specific focus around being selective as a theme. The idea of a person or spectator being selective in what they show interest in when it comes to art and literature. It actually is quite a unique idea, in that it allows people to focus in and really enjoy what they want instead of the kind of treading that they do through everything the do not really like as much. Another thing very important that we discussed is the poem of the week, written by Ellie Dickinson. We had to actually take a new approach to the poem and find a way to separate the speak from the reader and both of those from the writer due to the way she had written the piece. We learned how to determine the different types of imagery and what that means on an analytical level. It was actually quite tricky to learn as all of the groups sort of looked at each part as being it is own type of imagery so we had small disputes amongst ourselves trying to determine what was really meant in each stanza. And while i do find it valuable and important there is definately a certain level of hopelessness that comes with discussing something like that, as with this piece in particular we will never find out what she really meant and while you can make really good inferences, no one will ever know how deep or shallow the writing really was, but maybe that is what is fun about it, I do not really know. But in time, I will.
