This story for me was so boring because it never caught my attention since the plot development was really slow and it was not interesting at all. To be honest, I did not read the book at all but I know what the story is about because of the movie we watched in class. I believe that Nora is the character with more development since she tells a story more personal about herself sharing her feelings making you be identified with her.
It seems to me that Langston Hughes’ poetry is somewhat confusing but at the same time when he understands it, he transmits many things and many ideas that for some people may be somewhat debatable. I believe that this type of poetry addresses very important and significant issues in today’s society, such as racism, discrimination, among others. In the poems he presents us with different types of situations about these issues where erroneous behaviors are shown and where he expresses his desire that it not be that way. I feel that the author manages to sympathize a lot with the people who read it because he uses very relevant situations and that each person has their opinion in a different way.
I think the author has a very peculiar way of writing which makes it somewhat difficult to understand. I also feel that his verses don’t have much musicality, however his frustration is noticeable in them.
Outsmart Your Brain
In the text we can read the best way to understand a reading and the reason of why many times we don´t understand what we read. the reading give us a few tips of what we should do and what we don´t. After read this I can have a better idea of what I can do to have a better reading comprehension.
Now that I read the most common mistakes that people do when reading, I realized that I make many mistakes when I read a text. One of the mistakes that I do most is highlighting what I consider most important in the text without first knowing a little about the subject, now I know that it is not something that helps you to better improve understanding. Like this, there are many errors that now I know what to change.
I consider that Antigone was a very interesting story which I quite enjoyed reading, it is a story that has many events in history that make you want to continue reading it and personally I liked this story more than Odipus.
Antigone is a character that I find quite interesting and quite brave since despite what the others told her, she did what she thought was correct, I think that several of the decisions that Antigone made made the story have a more interesting plot.
personal response – oedipus
Oedipus personally seemed to me to be a fairly complete and interesting story which I really enjoyed reading, it was a bit complicated for me since it is an unusual English so there were words that I did not understand very well. However, this helped me to expand my knowledge and vocabulary.
Oedipus turned out to be quite an interesting story for me since it made me persevere and see many things differently, the book makes you see the world from another perspective, one in which everything depends on what is happening as time passes and the things are not always the same. Really this is a story that once you start makes you want to continue reading to know what will happen at the end.
Talking a little more about the main character. I feel that in the story oedipus made many mistakes but I don’t feel that he is a bad character because all the actions he did were for a reason and to help his people, however I consider that many times several of these actions went quite far so he could make it look like he had bad intentions. Despite all that, the character seems to me to be a fairly complete character and without a doubt makes this a great story.
