«The Impossible» writing assignment

In our writing skills class, our teacher Pilar told us to do two writings using a fragment of the movie «The Impossible». The first writing we had to do was a News Report and the second writing was a Diary Entry telling about the experience.

This is my News Report:
December the 26 of 2004

Indian Ocean Tsunami

Tsunami caused by an underwater earthquake affect 11 countries killing 250,000 people in only 10 minutes.

250,000 people died yesterday for the tsunami that attacked the Indian ocean coast. The affected countries were Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Somalia, Myanmar, Maldives, Tanzania, Seychelles,Bangladesh, South Africa,Kenya and Madagascar. This tsunami was 9.1 in the magnitude scale and they say it was the biggest tsunami in 40 years.
The tectonic plates there have been over a thousand years pushing against them. If they keep being like that it can cause more possible earthquake and tsunamis in the future.
This is my Diary Entry:

Dear diary, today the 26 of december of 2004 a terrible tsunami have killed my entire family except from me and my dad. What happened was that I was in a vacation with all my family and suddenly when I was at the pool a very strong wind came and then I saw a gigantic wave coming to our hotel. I was in shock. Everybody started panicking and my dad grabbed me by the hand and we started to run in the opposite direction that the tsunami was. Then the wave reached us and i lost track of my mom and my two little brothers. My bigger brother, my father and i tried to hold on to a palm tree but my brother wasn’t so strong so we lost him too.

Romantic Elements

Pato, our literature teacher, gave us as an assignment to find romantic elemnts in these three poems that we had already read and analyze. I made this with Maria Roggero and Fefi Marty.

The clod and the pebble
The romantic elements that this poem has are nature, supernaturalism, subjectivity and imagination.
Nature because clods and pebbles are things you can find in nature.
Supernatural and Imagination because clods and pebbles can’t talk because they are objects.
And Subjectivity because the two of them have different opinions, ideas about love.

Passion
The romantic elements that this poem has are subjectivity, supernaturalism, hellenism, naturalism, imagination, and escapism.
There is subjectivity because the voice doesn’t care to express herself and show her emotions.
There is supernaturalism because the voice the voice talks to the sky as if it was a person.
There is hellenism because she loves a man that doesn’t love her back, unrequited love.
There is naturalism because she talks to the sky, which is part of nature.
There is imagination because she imagines the sky talking back to her.
There is escapism because the voice escaped reality and the urban life to go to a place quiet and relaxing, which is nature.

She was a phantom of delight
The romantic elements that this poem has are: naturalism, imagination, supernaturalism.
There is naturalism because in the first stanza the voice describes the woman with words related to it. For example, “her eyes as stars of Twilight fair” and twilight is a period of time in the day.
There is imagination because the voice thinks that he is imagining the woman, because he didn’t know if she was an apparition or a real person. We say this because it says “a traveller betwixt life and death”. This quote tells us that the voice wasn’t sure if she comes from the spirit world she is a person.
There is supernaturalism because the voice describes her as a “phantom of delight” which means that she is too good to be real. Also, the voice says she was an “apparition” which that is related with supernatural because he refers as if the woman was a ghost appearing.
