The Singing School
writers desire to write comes from their own

DID YOU KNOW?
Language of Consciousness
Refers to speaking to a direct audience.
She's the Man
was inspired by the play
written by William Shakespeare
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF PEDIGREE,TAKING ONE IDEA AND TURNING IT INTO ANOTHER
three attitudes of the mind
First, a state of consciousness that separates you from reality
Second, a practical attitude of making a human life in that reality.
Third, an imaginative attitude, a vision of the world as you imagine it and would like it to be.
a language for each attitude
Language of ordinary conversation
Language of practical skill
Language of literature
She's the man
Frye mentions the attitudes of the mind and its corresponding languages
No human society can be too primitive, it hasn't yet become established from other aspects of life; it still apart of religion, magic and ceremonies
by Northrop Frye

Setting: Small village during Elizabethan era
employment and safety
so she dress up as her brotherafter her brother and her separate in a shipwreck
Siblings blieved the other was dead
TO WRAP THINGS UP:
some things will always be the same in literature; suspense, finding logical places to begin and end a book
literature can almost no longer be original, even though it is new, there will
be something recognizable to another piece
"literature can only derive from forms of itself"- Northrop Frye
Language of imagination or literature
Does not refer to anything in specific.
Let's things take on its own form.
Northrop Frye distinguishes language in two forms.
The origin that modern literature derived from, the basis for modern day stories
Such as stories about gods, magic and kings
mOST STORIES FOCUS ON THE IDENTITY OF THE HUMAN WORLD WITH THE NATURAL WORLD AROUND IT
these stories try to relate to the recurring feature of nature to human life
RITUALS AND DANCES
ARE DRAMATIC FORMS THAT BECOME AN independent DRAMA
Traditional literary forms
THE TYPE OF CHARACTERS GET INTO LEGENDS AND FOLK TALES, THAT DEVELOPS INTO FICTION
" The nature of my work is visionary or imaginative; it is an attempt to restore what ancients called the Golden Age" -William Blake
Components in literature are the same even though literature is derived from different creative minds.
By Northrop Frye
If we were to find ourselves in
and had no idea as to
All writers have problems with expressing their ideas in words.
Our initial impulse would be to find our
Stories are often outlined with the idea of:
how that world
was "lost" or taken away
how we some day maybe able to get it back again
how man once lived in
the "golden age"
e.g a happy island kingdom in the atlantic or the garden of eden (frye 20)
e.g William Shakespeare's "Hamlet"
Northrop Frye: "The story of loss and regaining of identity is, I think, is the framework of all literature." (Frye 21)
The Feeling of
If only i am keen and hard like the sheer tip of a wedge,
Driven by invisible blows,
The rock will split, we shall come at the wonder, we shall find the hesperides.
- D.H. Lawrence

(2 possible A'S)
Language of Consciousness
Writer's can only write when inspired. They write what they know and take away from the idea's of other writer's.
father dies leaving her to live with her horrible stepmother and stepsisters. She meets a boy on the
they have a relationship that goes on through
text messages and emails.
He asks her to the dance, where they meet, and she finds out he is the

EXAMPLES OF PEDIGREE IN DISNEY PRINCESS
MUCH MORE IN CHAPTER 2
It is important to note that every fairy tale starts with
"Once upon a time..."
and ends with
"happily ever after."
TWELFTH NIGHT NY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
The origin that modern literature derived from
"Song of a Man Who Comes Through"
Language of Consciousness & Language of imagination or literature
"Quiet people have the loudest minds."
everything comes from something
nothing is 100% original
literature can only come from forms of itself
Language on consciousness & language of lmagination or literature.
Writer's only write through inspiration and what they know.
All writes have difficulty expressing ideas in words.
Frye mentions the three attitude of mind and its corresponding languages.
Primitive literature is the basis of modern literature.
Literature is the same apects through time written by different minds.
The golden cities/golden age are rarely mentioned
focused on human conflict & issues
as literature and civilization develops, we lose our connection with non-human nature
enables us to separate from this opposite world (irony)
Why is the chapter called "The Singing School?"
The title is found in the poem, "Sailing to Byzantium"
written by Yeats.
"An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress,
Nor is there singing school but studying
Monuments of its own magnifience,
And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
To the holy city of Byzantium."
- Yeats (Frye 21)
Sailing to Byzantium
Conventions & REOccurance in literature
What is a convention?
Literature follows conventions because our imagination is only capable of working in terms of a world we know
Both Viola's dress up as brother to prove that women are equal
Same characters, different roles
Twin brother appears unexpectedly
Frye uses conventionalism to explain that literature follows a repetitive and reoccuring path.
When we come across themes, characters, and stories in literature we have to understand that they are all part of one big interlocking family as Frye suggests in this chapter.
GENRES ARE A CONVENTION.
The "evil uncle"
Death of the king (father)
Noble and helpful friend(s)
Overcoming a struggle
Father as a "ghost"
CONVENTION = PREDICTABLE
Marvel's stories based on Certain superheros
The martix series
Genres are conventions that give can help a reader to generalize and predict what a piece of literature will be about, how it may end, and similarities amongst other texts.
we're always reminded of other stories we've read, movies we've seen, or characters we were impressed by because all literature we come across is connected through an "interlocking family".
The loss and regaining of identity
THE REBIRTH OF HAMLET
EXPRESSION of language
Hamlet illustrates the search of identity/self discovery
It is how we see, and define ourselves, or the
network of values & Convictions that structures
How is it triggered?
I prithee, take thy fingers from my throat;
For, though I am not splenitive and rash,
Yet have I something in me dangerous,
Which let thy wiseness fear (Act 5, Scene 1)
Hamlet takes on numerous identities throughout the play
Once he is "reborn" from the grave, he returns to his final identity of a rational scholar from Wittenburg.
To be, or not to be?
Byzantium is the protaganist's
vision of paradise,
the golden world
by Rosikga, Erica, Rebecca, Ashley & Mellanie
The typical and socially acceptable way of writing, the way something is usually done. CONVENTION= PREDICTABLE
