Blog Topics Emerging from Week 8 and earlier….
Take the first line of any one of Yeats’ poems that has touched your imagination and write a poem of your own based around the theme of Yeats’ poem. This is a wonderful way of developing your own writing ability and was often recommended as the best way of learning how to find your own poetic voice!
Do any of Yeats’ poems connect with your own personal experience? Select one of Yeats’ poems ( or a section thereof) and discuss how the poem connects with your own understanding of the world in which we live.
Virginia Woolf seems to be intent on showing us that our way of behaving and thinking is both random and pre-determined. Do you think this is a fair assessment of what she is trying to show in her writing?
Virginia Woolf believes in the power of the imagination to liberate human beings from the shackles of their enslavement. Do you have a comment on this statement?
Write a poem or prose paragraph in a style that is rather like Virginia Woolf illustrating and ordinary mind (perhaps your mind) on an ordinary day.
Please remember that you can create your own blog topic on any subject that links with what we have been doing in the last few weeks. It is always good to weave your own personal experience into your blogs.
