“Composed Upon Westminster Bridge” Essay.

Our Literature teacher, gave us two tasks for an essay, we has to choose one out of the two. I chose Option 2.

In the poem “Composed upon Westminster Bridge” the writer, William WordsWorth, admires nature and man-made objects. In this composition i’ll analyze the admiration the author has for those two things.

In the first part of the poem, and in the first stanza the writer, is in London when the sun is about to come out admiring the peace and the silence. he uses hyperbolic language saying: “earth has nothing to show more fair”. In that line, he talks about man-made objects. For the writer, he has the most beautiful view ever and he thinks that if someone wouldn’t think the same as him about this view, the would be blind. He is delighted by what he sees and by the feelings it makes him have.

In the second stanza, the writer mentions all the beautiful things the city has at dawn. That’s why he mentions:”the beauty of the city” and the “ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples.” All of this things he mentions are open to the fields and to the sky. The writer mentions them as: “bright” because at that our, nobody was at work, and this was in the industrial revolution, so factories would have smoke coming out of their chimneys when there were workers working. That’s exactly why the writer mentions: ” the smokeless air”. Factories weren’t open yet.

In the second part of the poem, the writer talks about nature and the city. The city is calm in the morning. Where he is now is peaceful, relaxing when nobody is working, and there is no one out since they are sleeping. In the end he thanks god for nature and everything that is beautiful about it.

All in all, William Wordsworth loves and contemplates nature and man-made objects.

The Escape: Letter from Patsy to mom

In Language class, we had to write a letter from Patsys point of view, here’s the letter me, Luli and Joaco wrote.

Dear Mom,

I’m planning to visit you soon. I hope you are waiting for me. I’ve been saving half of my salary every month because, as you know, my husband would not let me go away. It has been very hard for me because I am leaving my kids alone at home and I’m afraid Alton will hit them or do bad things like that, but I miss you so much and the only thing I am thinking about is how I am going to sneak out without notice. Mrs Ruby, one friend of mine, is helping me planning my escape. She helped me a lot with everything, she offered me a job and helped me to save money. Ruby will help me with the kids, making sure that Alton doesn’t hurt them. If  something happens to them because of me, I don’t know what i’ll do. Mrs. Ruby and I have been planning the way for me to sneak out before Alton wakes up: we will put the clock back. I miss you and love you and hope to see you soon.

 

Best wishes,

Patsy

Ensayo Lengua

Nuestra profesora de lengua nos dio una consigna de hacer un ensayo, había que postearlo en nuestros blogs y traerlo impreso, este es mi ensayo.

Ensayo Sobre Mirror Mirror

 

 

En este ensayo voy a analizar las características de un cuento maravilloso, y ver como se relacionan con la película “Mirror Mirror”

En primer lugar, en un cuento maravilloso siempre tiene que haber objetos maravillosos, por ejemplo: brujas, espejos mágicos, etc. En estos cuentos todos puede pasar, no hay nada que se considere imposible. En la película podemos ver un ejemplo de lo que mencione, un espejo mágico, la reina tiene un espejo mágico al cual ella le preguntaba cosas y le pedía favores, y el espejo los cumplía.

En segundo lugar, en el comienzo de la mayoría de los cuentos maravillosos, hay un “Había una vez”, a eso se refiere que no hay un tiempo exacto en el que transcurre la historia.

En tercer lugar, en los cuentos maravilloso, la mayoría de las veces hay un personaje, o personajes fantásticos. En la película podemos ver que hay una bestia horrible que rumba por los bosques de noche, la cual, en este caso, es controlada por la reina.

En cuarto lugar, el romance esta siempre presente, siempre están la princesa y el príncipe que se enamoran y después se casan. Suele darse que para que la historia de amor se concrete los personajes deben atravesar una serie de conflictos y desafíos para poder estar juntos. Por ejemplo cuando debe romperse el hechizo que le hizo la reina por medio de la poción al príncipe.

Por ultimo, en la mayoría de los relatos maravillosos, el príncipe suele ser el héroe de la historia, en esta película es diferente. Blancanieves es la heroína, que al enfrentarse a la bestia logra salvar a su enamorado, dándole un final diferente a lo esperado por el público, que la princesa siempre es la que debe ser rescatada.

En conclusión, la película “Espejito Espejito” si es una parodia del cuento maravilloso. En este caso, la película representa la mayoría de las características lo que la convierten en una parodia.
