Pastiche on Charles Dickens’ “Great Expectations”

Passage 1: Throughout the years I’ve been at this school, Brookes Westshore, is not my home; and my dad Miguel, living at home, and also my mom Adriana, were in Mexico are missed by me; and that Luisa, Rodrigo and Diego, my best friends back home, were also are missed by me; and that a combination of emotions comes and is intersected with home sickness, and the excitement to go home. That the light at the end of the tunnel, is the time when I get to go home; and that reason to be happy, when they receive me with a big hug, was the joy; and that cold feeling of sadness growing everyday, with that feeling of losing myself will come soon to an end.

Passage 2: A beautiful dancer, all in a beautiful costume, with great rhythm in her heart. A woman with no limits, and with grace in every step, and her hair moving around. A woman who had a big smile in her face, and showered with sparkles, and strehght to jump, turn, bend and stretch, with emotions flowing, and a message to transmit; who moved, and grooved, and danced, and who’s feet never stop as her mind was leting go all the feelings that cannot let her be herself.

One thought on “Pastiche on Charles Dickens’ “Great Expectations””

  1. After reading all the pastiches, Coen’s pastiches are the best. What they make them successful is how he exactly followed the structure, they are clear, really easy to understand and it is not wordy. What makes some of the other pastiches less successful is the repetition of words and the use of words that makes it wordy, this makes it to not make sense.
    What I learn is that it is easy to write a pastiche, however, it is imporatnt to be detailed and to clearly identify the structure so that it makes sense.
