I am honestly not a big reader, I never really have been. I have dyslexia and it took me longer than most kids to start reading. Although I have read books on my leisure before, there have only been two that I truly enjoyed. The first was Eragon, and the second was The Giver. I later ended up writing a literary analysis over The Giver in high school and it went very well.
Writing a literary analysis is not quite my favorite type of writing but I have never found it to be a problem. If I really enjoyed reading the book that I am going to be writing about then the analysis is not bad, in fact I sometimes find it fun. It allows me to really evaluate my thoughts and ideas about the book, and is like a blank canvas that I can lay out my opinions on. One assignment that I found very difficult was writing an analysis of one of Shakespeare’s works. I had this assignment for my high school English class my senior year. I did not do very well on this project; I have never been a fan of Shakespeare because I have never been able to truly understand his stories (textually or symbolically).
During my Composition I class here at
KSU I did a literary analysis
of an excerpt from a non-fiction book. I
found this to be somewhat boring, although I did have a strong opinion on the
ideas of the excerpt making it easy to write about. I believe the Module 9 analysis I will be
doing over A Sound of Thunder will not be too big of an issue because I find
the theories and ideals of the book very interesting.
