Pato gave us 2 text that we have to read and make a summary of them.

What is postcolonial Literature?

Postcolonial literature are novels, poetry, and drama which were written during and after colonization.
CONCERNS:
Reclaiming spaces and places:
To be colonized means that your colonizers would change you the way you lifestyle, your culture, traditions and your language.
It is descried with narration, and dramatization.
Asserting cultural integrity
When the indigenous didn’t follow the rules of the colonizers, they were left out, suppressed and openly disparaged in favor of raising preferences and social and cultural conventions of the colonizers.
Postcolonial literature seeks to assert the richness and validity of indigenous cultures.
Revising history
The colonizers tell what happened from the perspective of those
colonized and that was preoccupation of postcolonial writing
They try to justified their actions.
CHARACTERISTICS:

They described with a lot of detail indigenous people, places, and practices to counteract or “resist” the stereotypes, inaccuracies, and generalizations.
Appropriation of the colonizers’ language
Postcolonial writers chose to write in colonizers language
They invent new words to demostrate that they can handle the language, that was force on them

1- Pero se detuvieron indecisos en la orilla del foso, cuando ya se disponían a atravesarlo, porque había aparecido un ave agorera: un águila que volaba alto, llevando en las garras una enorme serpiente sangrante, pero viva. Esta se estremecía aún y no se había olvidado de la lucha, pues, encorvándose hacia atrás, hirió al águila en el pecho, cerca del cuello. El águila herida dejo caer a la serpiente en medio de la muchedumbre y, chillando, voló con la rapidez del viento.

3-  Agorera: http://es.thefreedictionary.com/agorera

4- Para los troyanos, el augurio en esta cita significa que ellos son el águila que será destrozada por la serpiente, que es representada por los aqueos. Ellos son el águila ya que están ganado la guerra, pero este suceso declara que en el futuro empezaran a perder y los aqueos a ganar. Para ellos es un mensaje de los dioses, declarando el destino. El destino es muy importante para ellos y no se lo cuestiona.

Essay The Clod and The Pebble, Love III

This is my essay about the clod and the pebble and love III


Essay Question: Both poems «The Clod and The Pebble» and «Love III» tackle the theme of love. Do you agree?

This two poems «The Clod and The Pebble» and «love III» handel love. But using two different points of view.

«The Clod and The Pebble» deals with love showing two diffrent points of view. For example when the clod says «And builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair» and when the pebble says «And builds a Hell in Heaven’s despite». This shows that the clod thinks that love is joyful and that the pebble thinks that love is depresing ,horrible , bad and makes you suffer.

On the other hand «Love III» handels secuar love. This means that it deals with religous theme. When in the poem they say «Love» they are reafering to God. So when the phrase «You must sat down, says love , and taste my meat. So i sat down and eat.» the poems say that you must accept «Love’s»(God) love.

In conclucion these two  poems takle two different points of view of love.
