I don't agree with your choice of books.
It's actually a great book. It gives many types of literacy devices and shows many figurative language devices that can helps us as students to understand the meaning.
Hello Denise, I definitely think the same way about the book. This book is very detailed and uses a lot of different literary devices to make the story much more understandable and enjoyable. I like how the author focuses on the setting and how the people work, because it gives the reader the perfect image on what is going on.
It is good to sleep on--literally. And you can throw it at your enemy and disfigure him--figuratively speaking.
Good advice Ms Kay. maybe I'll use it one day
It's alright Mrs.Kay, I adore your opinion on books!! 😉
I like how Jonathan Swift is explaining how Gulliver is such a gullible guy that every one including the reader might even believe. So I disagree as well with the Real Shakespeare because I like this book it was a well decision by Mrs. Kay
This book it's very interesting also helpful enough for the students.
I strongly disagree with "the real Shakespeare". I am finding the book Guilliver's Travels very interesting. At first I didn't think I would enjoy this book, but the more I kept reading the more I began to enjoy it. I find it really odd how Guilliver is a giant and doesn't just crush every single one of the Lilliputians. To me that is a crazy idea, but the author does a great job in describing how the whole island is set up. This is extremely important for the reader, so the reader can understand the journey clearly. I am excited to keep reading this book.
I think it was a good idea to work with this type of reading because it transports us to another imaginary place, not the regular places like New York in "The Great Gatsby" or makes us believe that there is another world where everything can exist like the Liliputians
I totally agree with you Jackie! it gives us a different image of fantasy and what other things can be like unlike NYC or modern, popular settings we all know.
Working with this type of literacy is fascinating. Brings a whole new world to the readers behind the book. We're so used to stories set in real places and eras that we have almost become ignorant to fantasy and the way it can empower our creative thinking. Great selection of book.
I like how Jonathan Swift uses irony through out the whole book. It helps me understand how he satirizes a lot of things. Such as the Lilliputians and Blefuscudians being described as tiny people yet they deal with "big" issues like beliefs, traditions, and ideas. Gulliver is a dangerous threat to the Lilliputians but Gulliver is the one who flees from their nation is also satirical. Overall I think uses satire to put an emphasize on what he is trying to deliver.
