Elizabeth Fry

After working on the different stages of Economy that would lead to the emergence of capitalism we have stopped and done research on  important characters during the Industrial Revolution. I’ve worked with Felicitas Donato on Elizabeth Fry. In order to recreate a vivid image of her and the role she played in society during the 19th century, we have created Histagrams. 

Wanna check ours and get to know Elizabeth fry?

Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845) was a pioneering campaigner for better conditions in prisons during the Victorian Period. She was a middle-class Quaker who sought to highlight the squalid and unsanitary conditions in British prisons and provide practical solutions to help improve conditions and reform prisoners. Gaining the support of prominence members of society, such as Queen Victoria and Florence Nightingale, she played an important role in later legislation which improved conditions in prisons.

“An Evening in Paradise”

EVENING IN PARADISE, JOHN MILTON (XVII)

Group work: Kenny, Giambruni, Bernusi, Torrendell and Donato

  • What kind of writer was he? Explain.

1)  Characteristics of Metaphysical poets 

  • He wrote Paradise Lost. What is it about?

2) Summary of the poem:

Paradise Lost is about Adam and Eve, how they came to be created and how they came to lose their place in the Garden of Eden, also called Paradise. It’s the same story you find in the first pages of Genesis, expanded by Milton into a very long, detailed, narrative poem. It also includes the story of the origin of Satan. Originally, he was called Lucifer, an angel in heaven who led his followers in a war against God, and was ultimately sent with them to hell. Thirst for revenge led him to cause man’s downfall by turning into a serpent and tempting Eve to eat the forbidden fruit.

  • Now, read the poem and say what you understand from it using your own words.

3)  The poem starts describing an evening in which every minute is more quiet and darker. All animals are asleep except for the wakeful nightingale with is singing. The writer describes the evening as similar to paradise and the day as the time to work. In that way, paradise is achieved, if you work hard when you are still alive.

4) Analogy: is a literary device that helps to establish a relationship based on similarities between two concepts or ideas. By using an analogy we can convey a new idea by using the blueprint of an old one as a basis for understanding. With a mental linkage between the two, one can create understanding regarding the new concept in a simple and succinct manner. 

In the poem this literary is device is employed to build up a relationship between the two concepts which differ from each other: “Evening and Paradise”.

The analogy in this poem is that after having worked during most of your life, peaceful nights would come and leading you to paradise.

Evening: “Silence” ; “Twilight”

Paradise: “Majesty” ; “Brightest”

5) 

  •  Analogy: is a literary device that helps to establish a relationship based on similarities between two concepts or ideas. By using an analogy we can convey a new idea by using the blueprint of an old one as a basis for understanding. With a mental linkage between the two, one can create understanding regarding the new concept in a simple and succinct manner. 
  • Symbolism: Symbolism can take different forms. Generally, it is an object representing another, to give an entirely different meaning that is much deeper and more significant.
  • Personification: Personification is a figure of speech in which a thing – an idea or an animal – is given human attributes. The non-human objects are portrayed in such a way that we feel they have the ability to act like human beings.

6)

It could account as a funeral scene.

Although, Milton uses peaceful images to link both concepts: Evening and Paradise.          In some way, he is leading us to the path of death and taking us away from life by describing in deep the majesty of heaven.

Stages: DAY/SLEEP/DEATH/PARADISE

Analyzing quotes: Games at Twillight

I worked with Sofia Montoya and Tota Lupi and in the following virtual period we had to select 10 quotes taken from the story we had already read called Games at Twilight written by Anita Desai and analyze them.

  • The ignominy of being forgotten – how could he face it?

This Quote represents a very important moment in the story where we can find Ravi reflecting about life and how frustrating it is to be forgotten by your own friends.

  • “Silence by a terrible sense of his insignificante”

In this quote Ravi is going through a moment of accepting reality and how disgusting it is to be forgotten by your own friends. When someone remembers you is because he cares about you and you are significant for that person, this means Ravi wasn’t neither remembered or significant to his friends.

  • “His voice broke with rage and pity at the disgrace of it all and he felt himself flooded with tears and misery.”

This quote represents the moment at which Ravi realized he has been forgotten. He went out of the shed and saw his friends playing another game, while he was hiding. This quote shows the exactly feeling of loneliness and disappointment, the misery and pain of not having won and being forgotten.

  • “He had wanted victory and triumph – not a funeral.”

This quotes shows the importance of the game for Ravi. It was clear that for him it meant more than just a little kids game, and he really wanted to win. But after realizing that he couldn’t win because his friends were playing another game he had ended up in his own funeral.

  • “…his success had occupied him so wholly that he had quite forgotten that success had to be clinched by that final dash to victory…”

This quote represents the feelings of Ravi throughout all the story. First,  he wanted to succeed and for that reason he was happy and enthusiastic. He felt as if he was the best hide and sick player. But then, when he realized that for succeeding he needed to finish the game, that was the moment he realized he was not the best player because he had not touched the wall to be a winner.

  •  He…wondered how many more creatures were watching him, waiting to reach out and touch him, the stranger. 

    The following quote shows how Ravi was feeling when hiding on the shelter, afraid of the dark and all the animals that could be hiding with him. He saw Raghu as the stranger who was trying to catch and touch him and the animals and creepy things he imagined were the creatures.
  • It took them a minute to grasp what he was saying, even who he was. They had quite forgotten him.

    Ravi had been forgotten. Alone in the shelter after long hours of being hided in the dark he was still playing the game, but his friends didn’t, they were already starting to play another game. As he came out of the shed and shouted that he had won and the other children stared at him in amazement, the fantasy that he had created crushed and he ended up humiliated.
  • It was an insect…exploring him.

    Ravi has chosen to hide on the unused shed. It was seldom opened and filled with the detritus of the households broken chairs and tables, old buckets and such like. He had never been inside when it was lit up, much less in pitch darkness like now. The smells emanating from the inside suggested there were different sorts of creatures hiding  in there. Ravi was glad he had got away from Raghu but also terrified by the spooky insides of the shed where nothing was visible. But there was something he felt crawling at the back of his neck, a spider!
  • No life stirred at this arid time of day

    The following quote shows the weather at India where the whole story takes place. Desai provides very vivid imagery such as this throughout the story to remind us of the dogged, unforgiving heat by direct description.
  • To defeat Raghu…and to be the winner…would be thrilling beyond imagination.

This quote directly illustrates the theme of fantasy vs reality because it represent the part when Ravi was going to win and was so proud of himself that he didn’t realize how long he had been hiding. It represents his fantasy of being as good as the older kids.

Sam Smith “Too Good At Goodbyes”

You must think that I’m stupid
You must think that I’m a fool
You must think that I’m new to this
But I have seen this all beforeI’m never gonna let you close to me
Even though you mean the most to me
‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts
So I’m never gonna get too close to you
Even when I mean the most to you
In case you go and leave me in the dirtBut every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true

I’m way too good at goodbyes
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
I’m way too good at goodbyes
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)

I know you’re thinking I’m heartless
I know you’re thinking I’m cold
I’m just protecting my innocence
I’m just protecting my soul

I’m never gonna let you close to me
Even though you mean the most to me
‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts
So I’m never gonna get too close to you
Even when I mean the most to you
In case you go and leave me in the dirt

But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true

I’m way too good at goodbyes
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
I’m way too good at goodbyes
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
No way that you’ll see me cry
(No way that you’ll see me cry)

I’m way too good at goodbyes
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
No
No, no, no, no, no
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
No, no, no, no
No, no, no
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)
(No way that you’ll see me cry)
(I’m way too good at goodbyes)

‘Cause every time you hurt me, the less that I cry
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry
And every time you walk out, the less I love you
Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true
I’m way too good at goodbyes

This is one of my favorite songs due to the fact that it is very passionate and emotional and it talks about something that we can all relate too. This song talks about the suffering someone goes through when getting dumped and heartbroken by someone and the fear of getting hurt again.

However, the song also says that after all the heartbreaks he got used to the feeling and suffering and learned how to cope with it.

Games at twilight

  • …everything was still curtained and shuttered in a way that stifled the children, made them feel that their lungs were stuffed with cotton wool and their noses with dust…

This quote belong to the first paragraph of the story, is the introduction. In the paragraph we are told that the children’s mother wouldn’t let them go outside to play in the hot day, they were stuck inside the house, all of the blinds were shut, windows were closed, and they felt as “their lungs were stuffed with cotton wool and their noses with dust”. This phrase is to describe how the children were feeling in the hot day, they were dying basically, it was disgusting to feel the heat up their nose and down their lungs.

  • “His voice broke with rage and pity at the disgrace of it all and he felt himself flooded with tears and misery.”

This quote represents the moment at which Ravi realized he has been forgotten. He went out of the shed and saw his friends playing another game, while he was hiding. This quote shows the exactly feeling of loneliness and disappointment, the misery and pain of not having won and being forgotten.

  • …he had been forgotten, left out and he would not join them now.

This quote is from the final paragraph of the story. Ravi is feeling the ignominy of being forgotten. He cannot face it. He refuses to play with the other children to the funeral game, he wanted a victory, but he was so blinded by the feeling of it, that he actually forgot what he had to do to achieve it. Now he won’t play with the other children, he just laid on the grass, seeing his triumph fade away like a bad memory.

  • It took them a minute to grasp what he was saying, even who he was. They had quite forgotten him.

    Ravi had been forgotten. Alone in the shelter after long hours of being hided in the dark he was still playing the game, but his friends didn’t, they were already starting to play another game. As he came out of the shed and shouted that he had won and the other children stared at him in amazement, the fantasy that he had created crushed and he ended up humiliated.
  • All this time no one had remembered Ravi.

This is when we are told that throughout the long hours that Rvi had been hiding in the shed, thinking about how to claim his victory, his family had moved on with their lives as any other ordinary afternoon, and no one had even noticed that he was missing. The children had ended and started many games, the parents had come back from work, washed their car, watered the plants. And when Ravi came out from his hiding to realize that no one had even noticed him gone, he couldn’t believe it. That moment is where this quote is taking us, to when Ravi realized he had been forgotten by his family.

  • “…his success had occupied him so wholly that he had quite forgotten that success had to be clinched by that final dash to victory…”

This quote represents the feelings of Ravi throughout all the story. First,  he wanted to succeed and for that reason he was happy and enthusiastic. He felt as if he was the best hide and sick player. But then, when he realized that for succeeding he needed to finish the game, that was the moment he realized he was not the best player because he had not touched the wall to be a winner.

  • He hugged his knees together and smiled to himself almost shyly at the thought of so much victory, such laurels.

In this quote he imagine the sensation of winning this war in hide and seek and because of it he started feeling the adrenaline of the victory. He also thought about overcome his opponents specially Raghu who was the oldest one and this is why he started feeling this excitement and was very anxious about it. All that he wanted at this part of the story was to try that taste of victory and feel superior to others by showing his abilities in this game which was very important for him. He wanted to prove that he could do it!

  • He wanted victory and triumph- not a funeral.

In this quote we can see that the narrator is describing Ravi’s thoughts. He didn’t want to be a loser. He wanted to win this game. When you are a kid games like hide and seek are taking very seriously, in this case the protagonist saw this game as if it was life or death. If Ravi wins he will be safe and with triumph and honor but if he lose this game he will be death and having a “funeral”. This thoughts helped him to continue playing.

  • “Silence by a terrible sense of his insignificante”

In this quote Ravi is going through a moment of accepting reality and how disgusting it is to be forgotten by your own friends. When someone remembers you is because he cares about you and you are significant for that person, this means Ravi wasn’t neither remembered or significant to his friends.

  •  He…wondered how many more creatures were watching him, waiting to reach out and touch him, the stranger. 

    The following quote shows how Ravi was feeling when hiding on the shelter, afraid of the dark and all the animals that could be hiding with him. He saw Raghu as the stranger who was trying to catch and touch him and the animals and creepy things he imagined were the creatures.

Last Virtual Period History

TASK: In it, you have to do some research on the development of the railway network in Argentina (as influenced by the English) in the 1800. Provide also a map of the network at the time. (You can/should establish a comparison with the network nowadays and/or with the network in England in the 1800).

The economic growth of Argentina in the second half of the 19th century went hand in hand with the laying of the railway lines. Many modern towns and cities began as small settlements around train stations.

In the early years, the railway was emblematic of the vast waves of European Immigration into the country, with many coming to work on and operate the railways and also in the sense that the population boom experienced as a result of this immigration required means of transportation to meet growing demands. Much like in the American West, the railways also played a key role in the creation and expansion of new population centres and boomtowns in remote parts of the country.

Britain had always been interested in Spanish America in general and Argentina in particular and signed various treaties in the 1850s, which laid the groundwork for massive investment in transport, communications and navigation.

The importance of foreign capital in the construction of the Argentine railways is perhaps overstated, with initial construction of the network beginning in 1855 at first with Argentine finance, which continued throughout the network’s development. The Buenos Aires Western, Great Western and Great Southern railways (today the part of the San Martín, Sarmiento and Roca railways respectively) were all commenced using Argentine capital with the Buenos Aires Western Railway being the first to open its doors in the country, along with its Del Parque railway station.

Following the adoption of liberal economic policies by president Bartolomé Mitre, these railways were sold off to foreign private interests, consisting of mostly British companies, in what would be the first of many acts where the ideological climate of the time would define the fate of the Argentine railways. These sales also included Argentina’s first railway, the Buenos Aires Western (by now 1,014 km long), which was sold in 1890 to the British company New Western Railway of Buenos Aires for just over 8.1 million pounds (close to £500 million in 2005 money). This sale, and others that came after it, was heavily criticised at the time for being far lower than the actual value of the railway, and prompted many anti-British protests.

But then, in 1948, President Perón decided to nationalise the seven railway companies operating in Argentina at the time. This was considered a turning point because it was thought to bring about economic independence. All it did was deepen the economic crises from the 1950s onwards by contributing heavily towards the national budget deficits and deteriorate the quality of the rail service and the rolling stock in a downward spiral.

Ensayo sobre los cuentos de Juan rulfo

El “boom” fue un fenómeno literario y fue un acontecimiento cultural. Un grupo de escritores consiguió darle a la literatura de latino américa una visibilidad y un lugar que nunca antes había tenido: se convirtieron en best sellers, comenzaron a ser traducidos a otros idiomas y a ser considerados por la crítica y la teoría literaria internacional. Este grupo de artistas se propuso la misión de describir las características que convierten a América en un territorio único.
En este ensayo voy a demostrar como Juan Rulfo (México 1918-1986) fue parte del boom latinoamericano cuando escribió sus cuentos “la noche que lo dejaron solo” y “Nos han dejado la tierra” ambos están dentro de su obra El llano en llamas.

En primer lugar, podemos decir que estos cuentos pertenecen al “boom” latinoamericano debido a que en ambos podemos notar como es la naturaleza de América Latina. Esto demuestra que los cuentos son parte del boom debido a que describe a fondo nuestro territorio.
En el caso de “Nos han dado la tierra” esto se ve en un claro ejemplo como lo es “…en medio de este camino sin orillas… al final de esta llanura rajada de grietas y de arroyos secos.” Esto muestra que Latinoamérica se caracteriza por tener grandes territorios llanos y lugares con mucho calor. “…las palabras se calientan en la boca con el calor de afuera, y se le resecan a uno en la lengua hasta que acaban con el resuello.” Los climas de América son tan cálidos y secos.
En el caso de “ La noche que lo dejaron solo” la naturaleza se describe como “…la tierra fría y el sudor convertido en agua fría. Esta debía de ser la sierra… Allá abajo el tiempo tibio y ahora acá arriba…frio…” Esta descripción demuestra que América también tiene sierras y que en ellas y más si es de noche la temperatura es menor debido a la altura y que a la noche suele refrescar.

En segundo lugar, Estos cuentos pertenecen al boom debido a que en ellos Rulfo trata de demostrar cómo es la política y la sociedad en latinoamérica. Rulfo trata de mostrar que la política es muy complicada porque hay muchas injusticias y dictaduras, también hay muchas guerras civiles y golpes militares. Estas caracteristicas las podemos ver en unos ejemplos de “Nos han dado la tierra” que lo demuestran. “Por acá resulta peligroso andar armado. Lo matan a uno sin avisarle…” esto demuestra que hay bastante violencia en latinoamérica y que en algunos países los militares tratan de tener el poder. “Pero no nos dejaron decir nuestras cosas. El delegado no venía a conversar con nosotros.” Esto también muestra que los gobiernos tratan de controlar todo sin dar lugar a opiniones y que además les ocultan cosas a los ciudadanos.
En el caso de “La noche en que lo dejaron solo” esto se ve claramente cuando los soldados tratan de perseguir al protagonista del cuento “… el debía de haber atravesado la sierra por la noche para evitar a los vigías.”

En tercer lugar, se puede decir que estos cuentos pertenecen al boom debido a la forma en que describe a la sociedad latina como más campestre y no de alta sociedad y esto se remite a los problemas políticos y económicos de latinoamérica. Esto lo vemos en el ejemplo de “nos han Dado la tierra” cuando uno de los personajes dice “ …por que a nosotros nos dieron esta costra de tapete para que la sembraramos.” Esta cita claramente demuestra el hecho de que el gobierno tampoco ayuda en que la sociedad y los ciudadanos pueden crecer económicamente debido que se hacían los que los ayudaban pero en realidad los estaban perjudicando dándole unas tierras que nos eran para cultivar. Estas son cosas que pasan en américa latina porque los gobiernos a veces hacen cosas para beneficio propio y no del pueblo.

En conclusión, podemos finalmente decir que los cuentos analizados arriba pertenecen al boom debido a que Rulfo trata de describir y demostrar todas las características y aspectos de América como fueron analizados en los párrafos anteriores.

Verse written on her Death Bed

Overview

This is a beautiful and moving poem filled with the romance of a woman who feels she has truly found her soul mate.

Read the poem

Thou who dost all my worldly thoughts employ,
Thou pleasing source of all my earthly joy,
Thou tenderest husband and thou dearest friend,
To thee this first, this last adieu I send!
At length the conqueror death asserts his right,
And will for ever veil me from thy sight;
He wooes me to him with a cheerful grace,
And not one terror clouds his meagre face;
He promises a lasting rest from pain,
And shews that all life’s fleeting joys are vain;
Th’ eternal scenes of heaven he sets in view,
And tells me that no other joys are true.
But love, fond love, would yet resist his power,
Would fain awhile defer the parting hour;
He brings thy mourning image to my eyes,
And would obstruct my journey to the skies.
But say, thou dearest, thou unwearied friend!
Say, should’st thou grieve to see my sorrows end?
Thou know’st a painful pilgrimage I’ve past;
And should’st thou grieve that rest is come at last?
Rather rejoice to see me shake off life,
And die as I have liv’d, thy faithful wife.

Mary Monck (?-1715)

Work in pairs and include:

-data about the writer and context of production

-whether this poem is based on her  life or not

-themes and tones

-literary devices used by the poet to put across her message

-personal conclusion on the poem 

Virtual Period

-choose a song that deals with the same topic, find a video and analyse it.

-Post it in your blog

She was the second daughter of Robert Molesworth, 1st Viscount Molesworth, and Letitia, third daughter of Richard, Lord Colooney, and sister of Richard, Earl of Bellamont. She became the first wife of George Monck of Saint Stephen’s Green, Dublin, and died at Bath in 1715. They had two daughters, the eldest, Sarah Monck died in 1739 and one son Henry Stanley Monck of St. Stephen’s Green who died in 1745.

By her own application she acquired a knowledge of the Latin, Italian, and Spanish languages, and read much English literature. Some poems by her appeared shortly after her death under the title of Marinda.

On her deathbed she wrote some very affecting verses to her husband, which are not included in her works, but which were printed in Barber’s collection Poems by Eminent Ladies.

The poem was written in 1715 in the end of enlightenment and the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. The poem is based on her life. She writes it in her death bed, as a farewell to her husband in 1715. However the poem was not published in that year, only after her death was any of her poetry published. The themes are companionship and friendship, rather than lust and passion since the poem is about true love. Also we see the impact of aging and mortality. The tone is generally soothing and gentle, with occasional emotional outbursts.

As for literary devices, the repetition of ‘all’ emphasises the fact that the husband is the only person in her life. We have an analogy presenting her struggle with illness as a war with death personified as a ‘conqueror’. She contrasts the ‘fleeting joys’ of life with the ‘eternal scenes of heaven’ in an attempt to convince herself and her husband that death should hold no fear and thus be welcomed.

Mary writes this poem to show all the love she felt for her husband, her best friend and companion. The poem is a farewell to the love of her life. She is writting this poem in sadness about leaving and being mortal, but at the same time the poem is a way to demonstrate to her husband how she loved him.

“Walking The Wire”

Do you feel the same when I’m away from you?

Do you know the line that I’d walk for you?

We could turn around and we could give it up

But we’ll take what comes, take what comes

 

Oh, the storm is raging against us now

If you’re afraid of falling then don’t look down

But we took the step, oh, we took the leap

And we’ll take what comes, take what comes

 

Feel the wind in your hair

Feel the rush way up here

 

We’re walking the wire, love

We’re walking the wire, love

We couldn’t be higher, up

We’re walking the wire, wire, wire

 

There’s nights we had to just walk away

And there’s tears we’ll cry but those tears will fade

It’s a price you pay when it comes to love

And we’ll take what comes, take what comes

 

Feel the wind in your hair

Feel the rush way up here

 

We’re walking the wire, love

We’re walking the wire, love

We couldn’t be higher, up

We’re walking the wire, wire, wire

 

So look out down below

Look out down below

Look out down below

Walking the wire, wire, wire

So look out down below

 

Oh, I’ll take your hand when thunder roars

And I’ll hold you close, I’ll stay the course

I promise you from up above

That we’ll take what comes, take what comes

Love

 

We’re walking the wire, love

We’re walking the wire, love

We couldn’t be higher, up

We’re walking the wire, wire, wire

 

So look out down below

Look out down below

Look out down below

Walking the wire, wire, wire

So look out down below

 

We’re walking the wire

We’re walking the wire

We’re walking the wire, wire, wire

I chose this song because I believe it shows exactly what true love and companionship is, which is overcoming things together and loving each other despite their flaws and I believe that is what what Mary Monck was trying to say in her poem to her husband. She is trying to say thank yo to her husband for all the things they went through together and I truly believe that this song and music video represent that.

Film: “Marie Antoinette”

This is a double virtual period, so your deadline is: October, 13th.

Finish watching the movie “Marie Antoinette”, by Sofia Coppola. (The link was provided by Alina in your Facebook group).

Then, answer the following questions and post them in your blogs:

1- Marie Antoinette is sometimes referred to as “The Teenage Queen”. What attitudes in the movie can show that?  She was refered to as the “Teenage queen” due to the fact that she behaved as a teenager, she was always going and organising parties and drinking all the time. Also, she had a childish personality. Moreover, she she defyied some rules such as the one in the opera concert and also, she cheated on the King Louis XVI.

2- After her first child is born she shows many changes in her attitude and lifestyle. How? Provide examples. Why do you think that happens?

First of all, when her first child was born, she decided to move to another house in the farm. There she teached her daughter how to treat animals and the flowers and she seemed to get a little bit more mature, but she was still partying all the time. It was as if she wanted more jewelrry after she had the childen.

3- Some historians have often suggested that Marie Antoinette’s behaviour helped encourage agitation in the people at the beginning of the Revolution. Can you find any instances in the movie that confirm or deny this claim?

Yes she micght have cause agitation due to the fact of  her extravagance and wild spending on clothing, jewellery and court favourites. In the movie this is shown very clearly when they chose the finest shoes or dresses, etc.

4- Towards the end of the movie, we see a more mature woman. How does she show she has somehow stopped being “The Teenage Queen”?

she somehow shows that she had  stopped being “The Teenage Queen” when the people of france attack Versailles adn she decides to stay by her husband side although he begged er to leave with the kids. She wanted to stay and support him and in a way that shows maturity and responsability.
