What can you find in common (story, themes, ...)?

Did you catch some of the characters' names?

Hiya

Imagine you have met these people while travelling: give a quick Jack Kerouac style portrait of three of them, about 30 to 50 words each, no more. Think about their eyes, their look, their clothes, their cheeks, their hair, the position of their mouth, their possible age, their possible personal story...Use as many consecutive adjectives as you can, but most importantly talk about your first impression of them and how you felt about them on second thoughts, after looking at them closely. 

Use the comments section to submit your portraits.

This is the video link from youtube that I played in class the other day. You'll find loads of others on Youtube. This one is interesting because you can really hear how his prose was designed to be read aloud; his voice, the rhythm and the intonation he uses almost make him sound like a jazz instrument!

Listen to the speed at which he is reading; it's not too fast. Listen also for the strong syllables, how it creates a beat.

This should be starting point of our "On The Road Reading" oral project.

 

 

Here are some videos to train yourself to read the text aloud; decide which best corresponds to the mood of the passage. For a more reflexive scene with little action you might prefer a slower soundtrack but for a more "active" scene with more people involved you want something faster. Here are the soundtracks you will be reading along to : 

 

 

    
   
  

 
 

 

Enjoy!

Read the summary of the play again.

Make a quick research on FABIANISM and see how it is connected to the play.

To illustrate the introduction about Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, here are some photos of

 

• The Brontë sisters                                Charlotte                             and     Emily (who wrote Wurthering Heights)

bronte sisterscharlotte and Emily

 

• Yorkshire, including Haworth, where their father was a parson (a vicar) and where they grew up

The type of houses you could, and still can find there:

North Lees Hall

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• Her drawing technique: girls were taught how to draw by copying from models. It was almost seen as wild and "fanciful" to draw from imagination

• If you want to find out a bit more, here is an interesting video, if you want to absorb the mood in which these novels were written...

 


Hope you like it.

Here is a video montage using the song "The Booklovers" by the Divine Comedy.

 

- Note down as many of the authors as you know

- What is the overall message of the song?
