Career letter

Today in class Mr. Croy told us that we will soon ne starting "Career Letters"we write to a job that we are interested and fulfilling and ask questions. I have no idea what I am going to write and who to. I hopefully will figure this out soon.

Incident At Hawks Hill

We recently started reading the book Incident at Hawks Hill by Allan Eckert. So far I'm enjoying the book. It is well written with great dialogue. I can't wait to continue reading this book and see what unfolds.

Tempest Theme

I think that the theme of the Tempest revolved around greed and power. Two guys tried to kill the leader for power. They were unsuccessful and almost caught. If they had been caught they would have been in trouble, but if they had not been so greedy they would not have even had that problem.

10 Lines Transformation

In class after watching The Tempest we had to choose 10 lines from the play to translate to modern language. 

My lines before Translation:
Sir, I invite your highness and your train
To my poor cell, where you shall take your rest
For this one night; which, part of it ill waste
With such discourse as, I not doubt shall make it
Go quick away; the story of my life
And the particular accidents gone by
Since I came to this isle: and in the morn
Ill bring you to your ship and so to Naples,
Where I have hope to see the nuptial
Of these our dear-beloved solemnized;
And thence retire me to my Milan, where
Every third thought shall be my grave

My Lines After Translation:
I invite you and your team
To my old house, where you should rest
For one nut which half of I will waste
with such confusion I won't doubt will make 
go away quickly; the story of my life
And the certain accidents go by
Since I came to this area and in the morning
Ill bring you to your boat and take you to Naples
Where I hope to see the wedding
of out dear beloved young ones in marriage
and then return to Milan , where
every third thought will be my grave

The Tempest

Yesterday we finished watching the Tempest. Once it was all over it was slightly easier to understand what the different scenes had meant in the overall structure  of the play. Im still quite confused though...

Watching More Of the Tempest

Hey All!👋

We watched more of The Tempest today. We watched a scene including Caliban, Setphano, and Trincula. After what we watched today I am finally beginning to understand this play! Caliban appears to be a 4legged 2 headed man. This applies crude humor to this work from Shakespeare. I am very happy to finally have an understanding of this play.
