The end

In my opinion the idea of doing an E- portfolio was a instance to learn a little more about what we can do with different tools. I used this space to open and to be more creative than in any other test or work in class. I really liked the way I found new things I didnt know I could connect with. So in conclusion, I hope everyone who reads all my work, could take something that was enjoyable or something to learn.

 

Loss of innocence

The conflict of «The Destructors» is primarily man vs. society. The boys have had their innocence stripped by the events of World War II. They use their imagination to reconstruct scenes of violence, demonstrating the influence of their environment on them. The bombed out area in which they meet symbolizes this. The first thing that came into my mind when thinking about The Destructors was the city of berlin after the war. I immediately connected the feelings of the people living this situation with the kids in the destructors. Here it is also the conflict between man vs society, they have taken lives because of this conflict and also the place where thousands of people lived. By this they have destroyed society. I think that many kids that lived this situation may have loss that innocence the gang in “The Destructors” did.

Rooms and my own Room

I can connect the poem to my room. My room makes me feel comfortable is the place where I think and I make reflections about my life. Everything that is in there is crucial to my personal comfort if something is moved or misplaced I automatically recognised it. I Believe that every room is a world there are certain things which  characterize each of us. Also it represents our personalities. If
A room is gloomy, light is very soft and it is barely seen the sunlight for it means the person is constantly sad and little bit shy. Although if the room is full of colours it has pictures sometimes frames it means for me that, the one who owns the room is very cheerfully, extrovert. In my particular case my room is a mix of things, it has a very soft light and sun barely enters but the color is a light blue which brings me happiness and there are lots of pictures of me and my friends.

Trauma

The “The Death Bed” by Siegfried Sassoon “Soldier Rest” by Sir Walter Scott andA war poet is a poet who participates in a war and writes about his experiences, or a non-combatant who write poems about war. While the term is applied especially to those who served during World War I, the term can be applied to a poet of any nationality writing about any war “Dulce Et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen are three poems that tackle the same main theme War Poetry. This term is associated with a poet who participates in a war and writes about his experiences, or a non-combatant who write poems about war. While the term is applied especially to those who served during World War I, the term can be applied to a poet of any nationality writing about any war. In my opinion I cannot connect this to my daily life, I have never lived through a war in my life the only thing i can connect is the trauma that is left after the war. Soldiers live with a trauma after war and I believe that everyone has their own traumas and that they are very hard to overcome. For example I remember a series called Sherlock which is clearly seen the trauma left in one of the protagonists Dr watson:

Here is a video clip showing it.

Reflections

 

(1929) The Lady In The Looking Glass: A Reflection and Alice in Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass (1871)

 

After reading this story the first thing that came into my mind was the second book  about alice in wonderland. This story it’s all about reflections. In the story by Virginia Woolf, it

describes the images reflected in a mirror situated in a woman’s dressing room, providing a glimpse of the furnishings of her life. It makes you feel she is in a parallel world and there is when the comparison with the movie goes. Alice Through the Looking Glass tells the tale of Alice who enters a parallel universe where the common sense laws that she had grown to take for granted no longer apply. She strives with admirable patience and persistence to achieve new understandings but is constrained as much as she is enlightened by her efforts to reconcile new experiences with her old world view. Also the two protagonists are women which fight with difficulties in their lives. This two stories also have in common that nothing makes sense, everything is confusing and it is complicated to interpret. Everyone has their own interpretation. What I found rare about this two stories is that they were published
with a lot of difference of years, and they have lot of resemblance.

Gothic

 

The Hollow of the Three Hills and The Haunting of Hill House: Gothic Elements

In The Hollow of the Three Hills by Nathaniel Hawthorne we have the theme of sacrifice, death, regret, guilt, desperation and bravery.
Hill house is a series which contains certain elements. Supernatural elements of Hill House are real paranormal manifestations and happenings in the characters’ minds. The trick is to read carefully and find out which is which.

The two of them have things in common, I am not talking only about the themes but the Imagery. As The Hollow of the Three Hills is a poem it only contain imagery which we can imagine the situation and the fear that provoked, in the case of the film The Haunting of Hill House has short video trailers which we can see the same imagery that Hawthorne transmits Both of them left the reader or the viewer with the same uncomfortable emotion.

Hawthorne uses dark descriptive imagery to draw in his audience into the ambiguous and mysterious setting that characterizes this Gothic fairytale. From the get-go, Hawthorne clearly depicts the darkness, mystery, and evil of the world.
