Three Favorite Texts From This Semester

764 words - 4 pages

Throughout the semester, we have studied a variety of texts. It is very important that students read and get exposed to many different texts. Reading helps develop the mind and can even help develop communication skills. This is a very important skill to encompass because you will need to have all throughout your life. It will help you with jobs and overall relationships that you have with people. Everywhere you go, you will see something you have to read. Whether it’s an advertisement board or letters you receive in the mail. Reading is a major part of life. It is a skill that everyone should contain.

When reading the play people still have hope that things will turn out even the outcome is already stated in the Prologue. The Prologue states, “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life.” It is also mind blowing how he writes the whole play in the iambic pentameter. I also enjoyed being able to watch both the Leonardo DiCaprio version as well as the Zefferelli version. They were both so different. Each was from a different culture. Zefferelli is French so it showed more nudity while the DiCaprio version focused on gang violence.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is another one of my favorite texts that we studied this semester. It is my favorite because it displays many different characteristics. For example, Hermia is strong willed while...
