Responding to “Thirteen Reasons Why” by Jay Asher

January29

A girl swallowed a handful of pills

She killed herself

Recorded a bunch of tape

That were sent to 13 people

Every tape had a different story

 

They were twisted suicide notes

This was no joke

If you were to find a little shoebox

You might be part of this story

Just listen

Listen to the tape

Your name will pop up

Promisse

Have no fear

Just place your fingers and watch

“Thirteen reasons why” by Jay Asher is a young- adult fiction book. This book is about a guy called  Clay Jensen returns home from school and  find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside the box, he discovers cassette tapes recorded by a girl called  Hannah Baker ( his classmate and crush) who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them and If he listens, he’ll find out how he made the list. Through Hannah and Clay’s narratives, the author Jay Asher weaves heartrending story of confusion, hopelessness and desperation that will deeply affect the readers especially  teens.   I chose a page that is my favorite from the book and I took notes how I felt when I read it. I made the poem by writing how I felt by using the words from the book and jumbling it up.  This book is full of feeling/ symbols about shameful, guilty, Fear, death, mysterious culpability,  To shows these symbols in my poem, I used the sentence suicide and pills to show death, the part “You might be part of this story”  and “Every tape had a different story” represents the feeling of mysterious and fear.  I think I used the words effectively to tell the audience the tone, massage and the mood.

Comparing Poetry and Ads

December9

In this few weeks in english class, we’ve been learning about how language and visual language persuade people. We are also looking at different types of poem, how poems evokes feeling and how the author use technique.

Poem is a piece of writing that express feelings and ideas. Poetry is more of a text than visual language. It makes us ( the readers) think more carefully of what the poet wants to say and how the poet uses techniques for example… there can be use of metaphor and Simile to evoke deep/strong  feelings which can change peoples opinion. By using these techniques it will move peoples emotions more than just looking at the Advertisement, you can also Imagine the theme/scene of the story. Personally, I think Poem is a best way to move peoples heart if the poem is deep 😉 On the other hand, “metaphor and Simile” are not just the techniques, it is also how the poet writes in sentences like making one sentences in 2 words. This shows how those 2 words are deep and they are important.

Advertisement can hook peoples attention easily by visual language which  makes a  lot of target to the audience than a Poem.  Ads gives us the main idea of a story by using pictures, the  audience just listens to it which makes us not to think more creative and openminded.  As I said before these days most of the people do not read poem because Ads have many techniques that will hook more attention for example, they use “hyperboles, imperatives and slogans” It might change how the way we think by looking at the ad but it depends on how they use those techniques but I know that it won’t be too emotional like the poem.

In conclusion, I think both Poem and advertisement have good techniques in a different way which will change peoples feeling. It is hard to choose with is good or bad because it always depends on the situation. But overall, Poem is a great way to tell a massage to  someone because you can be creative and open-minded more then just saying boring words.

This Novel by John Green is a Young adult fiction story and strongly shows the battle with cancer. The 3 main characters are Hazel Grace who tries to live the normal life of a 16-year-old girl, but she is also struggling with her lung cancer that is showing no sign of improvement.  Isaac has an eye cancer known as retinoblastoma, he also had one glass eye and one real eye, then the other real eye was removed. Lastly, Augustus “Gus” Water is struggles with his cancer returning. He has a type of cancer that causes him to lose his leg and wear a prosthetic and it’s also has a survival rate that is much higher than Hazel’s death . Well these peoples don’t let cancer stop there lives, they go out and make to best of their situation. While Augustus goes to a church support group with Isaac (they are close friends) for cancer survivors, He meets a girl that is one year younger than him which was Grace. They both immediately falls in love with her and  they realized that they are the piece that was missing in their lives. Gus showed Hazel that there is more to life than staying at home at letting the cancer consume you.  “I am a grenade and at some point I am going to bow up and I would like to minimize the casualties okay?” This is explaining why she cannot falls in love with  Gus and he cannot falls in lover with Hazel. She thinks that her time is limited and doesn’t want more people to help or care for her because she is the one who is going to hurt them when her time is up but still,  Hazel brings the light back into Augustus’s life. Finally they go out and start to live their lives, forgetting about the cancer. Before he dies,  Augutus used a wish he was givin by the hospital, he decided to tale hazel to Amsterdam to meet her favorite Author Peter Van Houten.   In Amsterdam Hazel and Augustus come more bonded with their relationships but when they return things turned out to be worst.  The worst part is, the doctor finds Augutus’ cancer had returned. Hazel and Augustus’ relationship became more stronger then ever.Hazel  tries  spending every walking moment with him. She cares for him and support him. A couple weeks after the cancer, “Time is a slut, she screws everybody” It proved to be to much for Augustus to handle his cancer and it gets the best of him.

 

In conclusion, this books tells us even though you have some kind of sickness you should not give up. If you think you are going to die soon, you should not waist your time. You should hang around and have some fun more than just staying in your house, watching T.V and eating a whole slice of pizza everyday.  100% Augutus had a wonderful time spending his short lives with Hazel.  This book is just perfect for girls 🙂 and I seriously had fun really thins book even though it’s so sad so I really REALLY recommend this book because it is #1New York times bestseller and I also recommend  THE MOVIE!

REMEMBER… There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anymore ever existed or that our species ever did anything. – John Green/ The fault in our stars
