Transcript of Brother Dear
The character that we feel went through the greatest change throughout the short story was Sharlene.
The theme of "Brother Dear" is that:
Individuality is achieved through doing what is right for you, not what is right for others.
Story by: Bernice Friesen
By: Nikki Day, Alison Haig, Victoria Kacer, and June Yu
"Did you know there's a small furry animal hanging from your chin?"- Sharlene to Greg (27)
"The spoon tingles against the inside of the glass, so I stop stirring." (31)
"Living here, in the land of sheer boredom, can make a normally sane person want to rip off her clothes and leap to her death from the top of a grain elevator." (26)
Greg and his father are each other's foil.
"... like a scrawny bird about to fall off his perch." (29)
We chose the song "Let Me Be Myself" by 3 Doors Down as our media connection.
Connections to the Theme
By: Julio Noboa Polanco
Let them be as flowers
always watered, fed, guarded, admired,
but harnessed to a pot of dirt.
I'd rather be a tall, ugly weed,
clinging on cliffs, like an eagle
wind-wavering above high, jagged rocks.
To have broken through the surface of stone,
to live, to feel exposed to the madness
of the vast, eternal sky, to be swayed by the breezes
of an ancient sea
carrying my soul, my seed,
beyond the mountains of time or into the abyss of
I'd rather be unseen, and if
then shunned by everyone,
than to be a pleasant smelling flower,
growing in clusters in the fertile valley,
where they're praised, handled, and plucked
by greedy human hands
I'd rather smell of musty green stench
than of sweet fragrant lilac.
If I could stand alone, strong and free,
I'd rather be a tall, ugly weed.
Thanks for listening!
