more focus, miss mori

I'm a cinematic addict but I like books, too.

A Separate Peace

A Separate Peace - John Knowles Normally, I'd jump to the juvenile statement that interpreting good books in class ruins them. Interestingly enough, though, interpreting this book in my class did just the opposite.

At first, I had read through the prose and the imagery, eager to finish up the reading assignment every night and taking half-hearted notes just to pass the pop quiz that would inevitably hit when least expected. Fortunately for me, though, in-class reading became a highlight, and my English teacher made me appreciate this book way more than I would have without any sort of guidance. Reading through the words again made me pinpoint every luxurious bit of metaphor and simile coating the book and, oh! What a joy each bit was!
