I must say I am glad to see this semester come to a close. I have really enjoyed this class and the different things that we have read but boy was there a lot of it! I can say with much certainty that I am still not a huge fan of poetry. I must not be a very deep reader because for the most part I do not see the hidden meanings that a lot of people see. Oh well won’t lose any sleep over that. I have found several authors that I will follow up on such as Flannery O’Conner, Kate Chopin, Alice Walker, William Faulkner, and James Baldwin; although Going to Meet the Man was disturbing I think I would like to read some more of his work. I was at a book sale at the Walton Library and found a paper back copy of The Red Badge of Courage that I thought I would give to my son to read, if not for this class I may not have even gave it a second glance. I would also like to find a copy of A Streetcar named Desire to watch. I have enjoyed reading the discussion posting by all of my other classmates and have decided that I have been missing a lot of information when I read because y’all see way more things in those pages than I do. So a big thank you to Mrs. Siemens for recommending that I take this class it has broadened my horizons.
