Essay on Sylvia Plath’s poem mirror

In a group, we were asked by our literature teacher to do an essay on Mirror

In the poem Mirror the lake and the mirror are personified to show what they can reflect

To continue, the lake, unlike the mirror can´t reflct perfectly youf real aspect. “In me, she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman rises. Here the lake talks about ageing and how he can see the the changes day after day, for example the wrikles that appear with the pass of time, it seems that women don´t like the idea of growing old. “She rewards me with tears. People want to stay young, but at that it´s imposible.

To conclude,  the personification in the poem is used to show the reflections of the mirror and the lake.

Revolting Rhymes

Today in class we worked with Roald Dahl’s famous revolting rhymes, here is some basic information on our revolting rhyme. Group work: Gonza, Bauti, Lucas

1.The rhyme depicts the story of a little girl’s encounter with a wolf. In this rhyme, there is a wolf whom eats little red riding hood (the main character)’s grandmother. In hopes of obtaining another meal, the wolf dresses up as little red riding hood’s grandmother. Little red riding hood however, realizes what is truly behind the costume and blows it’s brains out.

2.Differences and similarities between the real story and the revolting rhyme:

In the real story little red riding hood and her grandma are rescued by a lumberjack from the wolf, whereas in the revolting rhyme, little red riding hood simply shoots the wolf. Apart from this, there are also some changes in dialogue between the rhyme and the real story for example: Little red riding hood says “What a lovely great big furry coat you have one” instead of the usual iconic words of “What big teeth you’ve got” leading to the normally exclaiming “All the better to eat you with”. One similarity that the rhyme has with the original story is that the characters were the same, execpt for the lumberjack that usually comes at the end. Another similarity is that all of the characters end up facing the same fate, despite reaching it in a different way.

3. We chose this revolting rhyme because we were familiar with the original little red riding hood story and, upon reading the story, we liked that this rhyme broke away from the stereotype that the female in distress has to be saved by a dominant male figure. We also liked the rhyme because it

4. The 2 words we chose were:

Flickers: In this case, flickers is the word used to describe quick, small movements. Flickers can also be used to describe how a source of light unsteadily varies rapidly in brightness.

Word in use: The light flickers on and off constantly

Caviare: The pickled (preserved) roe (mass of eggs in the ovaries of a female fish) of large fish often eaten as a delicacy.

Word in use: Caviare is one of my favourite dishes

Illustration of the rhyme:

Comic Menelao vs Paris

Nuestra maestra de lengua nos pidió que creemos un cómic a partir de alguna parte de el texto de La Iliada.

https://Pixton.com/mx/:9go2j38s

“…Paris igual que un dios salio entre los troyanos… Menelao… pensó en vengarse… cuando Paris lo vio frente de los guerreros, su corazón se lleno de miedo y volvió con los suyos…” p.37

Mirror poem

Our literature teacher, told us to answer some questions about a poem we read.

  1. What is the effect of Plath’s choice to write the poem from a mirror’s perspective?
  2. Why do you think Plath switched the perspective from a mirror to a lake?
  3. Would this poem read differently if it had been written by a man? What about if a man was visiting the lake?
  4. How old do you think the woman in the poem is?
  5. Growing older is scary in this poem. When you think of yourself aging, is it scary like that “terrible fish”?

1- The effect on Plath’s choice to write from a mirror perspective, is because mirrors don’t lie, can’t lie. They only see your true you, your true image.

2-I believe he changed the perspective of the poem to the narrator being a lake, is because mirrors can look things exactly as they are. Instead, the image that a lake gives is or can be disturbed, just as human vision. What I mean is that the image a lake gives, is much more looking-like that how we see ourselves, because our brain distrubs it just as the lake does.

3- It all depends on what type of man wrote it. There are man that care about their image too, and viceversa.

4- I think this woman is very old, because she says that the woman in the lake is growing old, and I believe that she is THAT woman.

5- I don’t think growing old is scary, at least because I’m catholic. And although it is weird to think about, I think the ‘life before the life’ will be awesome

Writing task

Our history teacher told us to draw an object and do a poem about it

Trash can, by Manolo Padilla and Bautista Bravo

Always the trash I am receiving,

The tings that people waste,

My story is about dying,

Under the things that people hate.

Now I am a sea,

Fish live inside me,

And with the waste I eat,

 The life inside me they kill.

English favourite book

Our favourite English book are Harry Potter books. We like it because it’s a series of books which have lots of emotional parts. Now HP has also 8 movies adapted from 7 books.

The writer of these books is Joanne Rowling a.k.a J.K Rowling, who was born in London and is 51 years old.

The Harry Potter story is a fantastic book which has lots of love and magic.

About JK, we know that she had not a good relationship neither with their parents or his husband who broke up with her. But when she decided to write a book, she became famous and she is now happy.
