"The Flea" -- John donne

After reading, and re reading "The Flea" I think that its talking about a child in the beginning, about how two people had created a third. After that I was really confused. I think that it goes to them getting married and then finally they die with one killing the child and then the other.

I'm not very good at this.. but that's what I got..

My experience with poetry is not a lot. I know a little bit about rhyme scheme, and have read some, but I'm not sure exactly who the artists were. I have attempted writing my own and to me I think poetry is really just trying to tell someone the was you feel about something. May that something be a relationship, or an inanimate object. I also think that poetry can be really good just from an everyday person, it just depends how much passion is put into it.

3 Faustus

After finishing the Drama, it's like Faustus really got what he deserved after selling his soul to the Devil... However, he didn't really use any of his magic for what he had intended on using it for in the first place... all that he really did was mess around with and play jokes on people that really didn't result to anything. At the end Faustus goes on this rant about he wishes that he could repent for his sins because he really doesn't want to be damned to hell. I think that this is important Drama that was really meant to teach what was right and what is wrong to people in an age that might not know what to believe or follow.

Dr. Faustus 2

I think so far that this Drama is about morals. Like about what is right and what is wrong and how a person a can be very indecisive about what they believe. Faustus is tired of what he knows and he believes that buy selling is soul he can have powers to raise the dead; but in this he finds himself questioning if he really did sells his soul and if Hell even exists. I think that Faustus really wants to be good but he isn't sure that he did the right thing... how ever! He wants to have money and power so that takes over what he thinks... I do think that he will always think that he followed the "wrong" path, and that maybe if he could repent that he would be ok. After this the scene with the devil coming to see him he's told that he mustn't talk about God, Heaven, or anything that is related to God. I think at first Faustus is ok with this, but i think that he will be upset by it in the end and that he will eventually feel lonely. In scene V we find that someone has stolen Faustus's book. I'm not sure where that will go, and I'm really unsure of the consequences that it will have on Faustus, but I think that it will all tie together eventually.

Reaction to Dr. Faustus Act I

I think that Faustus is an evil man. He is so filled with all this knowledge and doesn't want to share that with the people around him. He would rather practice dark magic and attempt to raise the dead instead of helping the living. I think that he is essentially being too proud and selfish. I think the end of Faustus is going to be something tragic yet deserving from the way he acts now.

The Little Mermaid

I thought that the point of view was third person limited omniscient because the narrator really focus's on the youngest little mermaid the most. I chose this story because I thought that it would be the most appealing to me. I was, however, disappointing in the ending of it because I never knew that the youngest mermaid never married the prince. The setting of this story takes place half at see and half on land. I think that the sister mermaids are the most influential, as well as the Prince, to the setting.

Compare and Contrast

Both of the stories started in the middle of the story to make it more dramatic and seem more intense then the story actually was. This helps the plot of each story. The plot in "The Birthmark" was to get the birthmark off of the women. In doing so Alymar killed his wife. This plot had a surprising ending and the characters were very different all throughout the story. The dynamic character is Georgina because she went through a change in the story - Dieing. Alymar was a static character because he had one thing on his mind and one goal - to get the mole off of his wife's face. In "Bartleby, the Scrivener" the plot is mainly about how the characters are useful to one another. If they were not useful in the plot then they were not talked about. All the characters where static characters besides the lawyer. He had to constantly change what he was doing to make up for what the others were doing.

I think that when comparing the two stories we learn that no one is perfect and in trying to change them into perfect we destroy who they are and what they should be and possibly even kill them off completely.
