Wide Sargasso Sea was overall a really enjoyable read, I liked being able to see Antoinette/Bertha’s perspective and it was nice to know a little bit more of her background. This novel made me disagree and despise Rochester more than I did in Jane Eyre. Near the end of the novel we see Antoinette, now… Read more Time and Memory
The symbol of fire
Of course Wide Sargasso Sea has to do with Antoinette (Bertha) Mason and Mr. Edward Rochester, which is why I am going to connect Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea. Through both of these stories fire seems to be a symbol that we just keep seeing. In Jane Eyre we see Bertha lighting a fire… Read more The symbol of fire
Woman in the attic/Woman in the basement
I know I am a little late on posting the second project but I have been having a hard time thinking of songs that could go for the characters. I was going to make another Spotify playlist like I did for Frankenstein but decided on making small playlists for each character. I was going to… Read more Woman in the attic/Woman in the basement
I want to talk more about bmb’s project. I though this was an extremely interesting take on Frankenstein and it instantly had me drawn in. If any of you haven’t checked out this project I really think you should. They connected tarot cards to different character in the book and it was a really cool… Read more bmb1502 project

Some of these songs are jokes and just have little pieces that I though were funny and added a little spice to the playlist, others have a full… Read more Frankenstein Playlist

When he learned about the world and how everything worked he wondered about his mother and father, he wanted to know how he was created. He had stolen the notes that Victor had written… Read more Karma, am I Right?
The pretty present
I’m never really one to read classics and after everything I had heard about Frankenstein, I never felt the interest until I started. I can genuinely say I am enjoying this book greatly. This book holds such powerful meanings about how a monster might not actually be the monster and how a person could be… Read more The pretty present
Were They Even Actually Mad?
After reading Hamlet and having our discussion during class I really just wanted to keep talking about the theme of madness in the play and if Hamlet and Ophelia were even actually mad. So then my first question starts, Was Hamlet actually mad? In the beginning we see that he says he is going to… Read more Were They Even Actually Mad?
My connection to disabilities and reading
I’ve never been very open about my mental health and how it affects my daily life, it’s not something I thought people would care about or pay any attention to. Talking about my anxiety and depression and how it affects me is something that I am always scared to open up about because I feel… Read more My connection to disabilities and reading
