WEEK 7 and the one's i missed..

greetings everyone. this is my second post since dr raihanah created this blog specially for us. my apologies. it has been awhile for i was quite lost in class. am still unfamiliar with 'literature' and its beautiful language. i begun to understand bits and pieces..but not so much.today, i learn that it is important to study 4 things in a text - characterization, figurative language, point of view and ah........i lost it. im slowly starting to learn..how to get a theme from a text..it should be stated in a sentence. i am glued to the song 'I Am Not My Hair' by India Arie...thanks to dr raihanah. i havent heard of it before till dr played it in class. it is generally about a Black women not living life according to her culture/tradition. she is discriminated for her physical appearances. she sends out the message that her physical appearance does not define her..she is someone different in the inside. from this text, i learnt that people will always talk no matter what. its our nature to do so. so, this should not stop us from being ourselves.
thank you.

well done! you've just done a critical appreciation of 'I'm not my hair'. Forget about the term Literature. Focus on what a 'text' (song/poem/novel/film etc) 'says' to you.
