Personal Literary Canon 1 My Personal Literary Canon LIT210 Personal Literary Canon 2 My Personal Literary Canon Throughout the years my taste in literature has taken some turns My earliest experiences with reading novels were centered on science fiction and fantasy I think the movie Star Wars had a profound effect on my imagination as well as my desire to experience the writings of various authors I also read the Lord of the Rings series by J RR Tolkien as a young lad of about nine or ten years old and although some of the writing was a bit complex for me at that age I completed the trilogy nevertheless through sheer perseverance During my high school years I became fascinated with the macabre particularly Edgar Allan Poe HP Lovecraft and Stephen King Although I have read little of these authors in recent years I still own collections of their books and I occasionally grab one from the shelf and immerse myself in the words for a bit As I grew older I tended to gravitate more toward modern thrillertype books such as those by Tom Clancy or John Grisham I find that these authors have a great sense of storytelling and the plots of these novels often read as cinematic action movies Grisham however has another side to his writing which I also enjoy he sometimes weaves tales of the ordinary lives of Americans such as those in the book A Painted House Other than college textbooks I try to find the time to read an occasional novel and I usually find myself entranced in some novel or another while on vacation or when I have time at home Two nights ago I began reading a fantasy novel by Stephen R Donaldson called The Runes of the Earth I truly admire Donaldson s writing style and his imagination is surpassed by few other fantasy writers His characters personalities are so descriptive that by chapter three Personal Literary Canon 3 or four one feels like one has known the character all of one s life In addition his use of simile and metaphor is extremely admirable Throughout this course I have been intrigued by the author s works in our literature textbook I enjoyed every story poem and drama in the required reading and I hope to explore more of some of those author s works I was a bit disturbed by the story The Lottery but this story appealed to my enjoyment of the works of other macabre authors I have read The Cask of Amontillado many times before but that tale never relinquishes its entertainment value to me I also was very fond of the poem Starry Starry Night and although I had trouble grasping some of the meaning at first after a thorough analysis of this poem I had the same warm fuzzy feeling I get when I view Van Gogh s works of art I have earned a new appreciation for poetry which I hadn t had before and I am glad I was able to be a part of the experience It is difficult to ascertain what my selections infer about my cultural identity I imagine that as a native of Virginia and former resident of Baltimore Maryland I feel a certain kinship with Edgar Allan Poe In fact as a young bachelor my apartment was half of a block from his grave site I also frequented the tavern in the hotel which was a favorite of Poe s haunts My interest in fantasy novels is probably connected with my own vivid imagination Often the sameness of the mundane world leaves me with a desire to seek out otherworldly magical realms Overall I would count this class among my favorites so far in my college experience I enjoy reading just about anything even boring technical manuals and there was not a single work of literature in this class which I found boring The material was exceptional and the Personal Literary Canon 4 instructor fantastic I Will miss this class and I hope that I get the opportunity to explore similar classes in my academic future
