Transcript of Senior Folio

Novel imagine long exciting experience famous I think NOVEL is the most interesting literary genre. I started to read books with novel when I was young, because novel helps us to expand our imagination and it organizes well by plot, so it leads me well the story. When I was young, I didn’t know that there is common rule for plot that make literary work to be flow naturally. Since the work is made up by author, the ending of it was generally ended with happy ending, but now these are lots of unhappy ending work, because many reader lost their interest on happy ending book which they’ve been for long time. The reason why I like novel is that it gives chance to experience other way of life which character in the book does. I’m absorbed in character when I read novel, and I worry about the conflict and try to find what I can do in that situation. I love to see the internal conflict of character in novel.
What I have learn for three years of English studying Short Stories Short! fast development easy to read less time is needed kids love it ( I love, too)
is first literature I met. Usually child tale is short, so the story development is fast to finish in short word. In short story, the plot is not much complicate, but fast development make reader to be more focus on the work. Usually short stories are published by series if it’s popular among readers. Most of popular short stories have strong turning point to give strong impression to readers. I more like short stories than before, because it is easy to finish for me who don’t have much time like before. Especially in class, long novel is hardship for me, but short stories is simple and easy to understand.

‘When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin. He was lying on his back as hard as armor plate, and when he lifted his head little, he saw his vaulted brown belly, sectioned by arch-shaped ribs, to whose dome the cover, about to slide off completely, could barely cling. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, were waving helplessly before his eyes.’

The Metamorphosis Knowing that Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble, great care was taken to break to her as gently as possible the news of her husband's death. … There were patches of blue sky showing here and there through the clouds that had met and piled one above the other in the west facing her window. … She sat with her head thrown back upon the cushion of the chair, quite motionless, except when a sob came up into her throat and shook her, as a child who has cried itself to sleep continues to sob in its dreams. … "Free! Body and soul free!" she kept whispering. …Some one was opening the front door with a latchkey. It was Brently Mallard who entered, a little travel-stained, composedly carrying his grip-sack and umbrella. He had been far from the scene of the accident, and did not even know there had been one. He stood amazed at Josephine's piercing cry; at Richards' quick motion to screen him from the view of his wife. When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease--of the joy that kills. 
The Story of an Hour Poetry short symbols like word game! rhyme and rhythm I like POETRY, because it is like word game. The rules for the game is simple such as making rhyme and rhythm on short sentences, and using symbols which have hidden meaning. When I started to learn poetry which written in english, I stuck on the first sentence. But as time goes by, I learned that I don’t need to think so hard. Now when I read poetry, I just read and then think about the sound and words. It took more time to get than other literary work, but now I love to find the meaning on the word or sentence itself. I see poetry as a good way to express personal thought to public, but in secret, because it can be interpreted in many way by the one who read it.
This is my letter to the World
That never wrote to Me–
The simple News that Nature told–
With tender Majesty

Her Message is committed
To Hands I cannot see–
For love of Her–Sweet–countrymen–
Judge tenderly–of Me

This is my letter to the world
by Emily Dickinson Theater/Play dialogue visual stage direction narration action! THEATER/PLAY
I’m a part of visual generation which favor to video stuffs rather than readings. Watching movie is not required to imagine in your brain, not like reading book which need to think yourself. Scripts are written for theater, so it made of dialogue of characters and it still need to imagine what the scene would like on stage. Stage direction helps reader to imagine scene, and helps actor with his action on the stage. I like Narration part, because it sounds like mother is telling story to me. Especially if the setting of play is past time, it’s difficult to understand the style of dialogue. However narration gives me kind of summary and explanation about what happened in that scene. I watched play once in my life when I was so young so I even couldn’t remember what title was. However, I remember the fascinate feeling I felt when the dark red curtain was raised.
Horatio: What is’t, my lord? We will.
Hamlet: Never make known what you have seen tonight
Horatio and Marcellus: My lord, we will not.
Hamlet: Nay, but awear’t.
Horatio: In faith, my lord, not I.
Marcellus: Nor I, my lord, in faith.
Hamlet: Upon my sword.
Marcellus: We have sworn, my lord, already.
Hamlet: Indeed, upon my sword, indeed.
Ghost: [Cries under the stage] Swear.
Hamlet: Ah ha, boy, say’st thou so? Art thou there, truepenny? Come on, you hear this fellow in the cellarage. Consent to swear.
Horatio: Propose the oath, my lord
Hamlet: Never to speak of this that you have seen. Swear by my sword.
Ghost: Swear.
They swear
Hamlet: Hic et ubique? Then we’ll shift our ground. Come hither, gentlemen, And lay your hands again upon my sword. Swear by my sword Never to speak of this that you have heard.
Ghost: Swear by his sword.
They swear
Speeches strong
sentence to persuade other opinion speaking SPEECH is way of express personal opinion in front of crowd by using effective language such as repetition, simple and strong sentence. The purpose of speech is mainly to persuade opponents. Speaker often use ‘I’ in the speech to give personal idea, but later on it expended to ‘we’ which make listener to be part of the speech. Speech is usually formal, but some speech use informal language to emphasize others. I’m not good at speaking in front of crowd. When I stand up in front of crowd, my heart rate is getting faster and my voice become tremble. I think speaker need to be rational and also to be emotional to persuade others with more effect.
That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man - when I could get it - and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother's grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain't I a woman?
Then they talk about this thing in the head; what's this they call it? [member of audience whispers, "intellect"] That's it, honey. What's that got to do with women's rights or negroes' rights? If my cup won't hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn't you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?

Ain't I a Woman?
I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

'I have a Dream' Songs like poetry give strength rhythm I love SONGS even though I’m not good at singing. I envy great singers who do singing well. Song makes people to relax or to forget their hardship. Some songs are really helpful and give strength when I face hardship. Nice rhythm and good lyric makes good song. Lyric of song usually forms as a kind of poetry which might have rhyme. Since I’m not good at singing, I look at lyric as the most important element of song, especially when lyric sounds like my situation now. Song used for giving strength to people in past, too. Thus, I think song often reflect the hardship of that time.
