Transcript of Relevance of Literature

Antimonocromatismo II by Agnes Cecile
the art of escape
We use literature to escape from reality.

Drug: something (often an illegal substance) that causes addiction, habituation, or a marked change in consciousness

"Literature taps into a collective consciousness that none of us really understands"
- Dan Mills
Merriam Webster definition: tolerance to the effects of a drug acquired through continued use; decrease in responsiveness upon repeated exposure to a stimulus.
"Using a Position Emission Tomography procedure, the team found that dopamine was released while listening to pleasurable music....which explain why we’re willing to spend so much time and money trying to achieve musical experiences"
Found in study by McGill Universtity students
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires."
-C.S. Lewis
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”
- Victor Hugo
A Thousand Years
Heart beats fast, colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer...

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

We go places and do things that we would not otherwise get to experience in real life through literature
-an escape from reality, in a sense
BRAIN GAMES- Use it or Lose it
Quote # 1
"No time to talk. Now remember, it's your first day of trainin', so listen to your teacher and no fightin', play nice with the other kids, unless, of course, one of the other kids wanna fight, then you have to kick the other kid's butt."

"But I don't wanna kick the other kid's butt."

"Don't talk with your mouth full. Now let's see your war face."
Quote # 2
"Please don't eat me."

"Drop 'em!"

"Hey! Who's the pig?"

"Are you talkin' to me?"

"Uh-oh, they called him a pig."

"Are you talking to *me*?"

"Ya shouldn't have done that."


"Now they're in for it."

QUOTE & SONG # 2 :
Lion King
There are 120 notes audible to the human ear.

Quite an extensive alphabet.
L'Un Vers L'Autre

"un aveugle en son coeur pourrait le voir"
- A blind man could see it in his heart -

"le bonheur ça fait mal chez les autres"
- The good fortune is ill for the others -

"quand on n'a pas de rôle dans l'histoire."
- when one has no role in the story. -

"Mais dans une pièce à deux"
- But in a scene for two -

"les autres n'ont pas d'réplique"
- others have no reply -

"ils sont dans le public."
- they're just part of the audience. -

"Ils marchaient sans savoir l'un vers l'autre"
- They walk without knowing, one towards the other -

"et la chance a trouvé le hasard;"
- and Lady Luck has found Chance; -

J'Avais Rêvé d'une Autre Vie

Good Lord,
What have I ever done to you,
That the more I fall
The more you let me fall?
I had dreamed of a heart so large
That mine could find a place within it
For a shared happiness.
Good Lord,
What have I ever done to you?

Doux Seigneur,
Que vous ai-je fait,
Pour que plus je tombe,
Et plus vous me laissiez tomber?
J'avais rêvé d'un coeur si grand,
Que le mien y trouve place
Pour un bonheur à partager.
Doux Seigneur,
Que vous ai-je fait?
Fearless - Taylor Swift
There's somethin' 'bout the way
The street looks when it's just rained
There's a glow off the pavement
you walk me to the car
And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there
In the middle of the parking lot

We're drivin' down the road
I wonder if you know
I'm tryin' so hard not to get caught up now
But you're just so cool
Run your hands through your hair
Absent mindedly makin' me want you

And I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress
What can we gain from music?
