  • I think you did a good job with showing your topic of time and how it plays a role in Nabo. Time is definitely something we encounter in many of the stories this semester. I like the way you talk about the different kinds of time lapses and show where you got them from within […]

  • Interesting blog about time and how it is used in People of Paper . I think we can also see this in Garcia Marquez’s short story Nabo , as well as in many other things we have read this semester . It is also interesting how time plays differently in each of these books each […]

    Thumbnailhttp://xiamenwriting.wikispaces.com/Narratology Cool website i came across talks about narratology . It also talks about many of the terms that we have used this semester and learned about through the Jahn article. I found it very helpful the article and the website because Jahn was able to relate to all the stories we have read this semester. […]

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMwPZ_Wv0Gc This video is a cool one in the sense that its also from a persons POV that is in the car but its not from the front driving forward.

It is cool to see it from a personal perspective because you actually get a feel of being on the ride and seeing it as if you were on it . The same way you read a book […]

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqaoVpl2arw   In this video we see the director of the film talk about and show how he incorporates magic into his film. There is a lot of magical realism used not only in movies but also in books i think it makes the movies so much more interesting and lets you open up your […]

    At first i hadnt liked the book from what i remembered it last year but this time around my opinion about it definitely changed. I enjoyed it very much i was still confused with the shifting realities and this whole idea of time but i guess since we were dealing with things like that all semester i was able […]

    One of the things that i liked about this book is that the narrator is very descriptive of everything he does and sees. When he is constantly shifting between realities he is able to describe to his readers in such detail what is going on that he makes you feel like you are there. It is confusing […]

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lcx7JlDeiNk This video was interesting to  see because i didn’t really know much about the aztek empire . The only things i knew was that they existed thousands of years ago and what i had learned in school about them . We see what our narrator has to say about them and their history and its all part of his […]

    Group Work   Questions we had on the book Atomic Aztex   How do we know when the text goes from one world to the other and the narratives are changing ? What is the theory of time ? Why is the scene with the hogs depicted so in depth ?   For the most […]

    Class Notes our opinion on Atomic Aztex   The book Atomic Aztex was a weird one it was something i read last semester and i wasn’t really a fan of . From what i remember it deals with a man named Zenzo who is the keeper of the house of darkness, slaughtering animals in a […]

    The People of Paper seemed like an interesting book to me . It was different than what i had read before. I like the fact that the stories are told from each characters point of view. I think this is a very effective way of doing things so we can see each persons perspective on […]
