I really liked jennie's diamond/ lit. metaphor.
I think that Francoise is crazy for wanting to move alice in wonderland down the list. My suggestion to her (and I don't know if she has done this or not) is to reread it as an adult. I reread it last fall, as my non-school related/ relaxation/ easy read book. It was fasinating, there were things in there that I had never picked up on before, when I read it as a child. I also want to make that point that it is an entirely different experience from that movie; it is not the same as reading and putting yourself in that world. It was also the first time that I understood what was actually happening in the walrus scene. That is a book that we cannot alter; it belongs in the top 10. I was suprised that mandy incorporated poe into her essay. I'll be honest he was the one that I thought had little to say, but that may be because we was easy to understand. I did think it ws interesting that the last two presentors brough god into thier papers, but now I find it more interesting that more didn't.
Sexson's conclusion: lit. makes you a more interesting person.
