Day 48

Objective:  The students will discuss Frankenstein and then look at a very cool poem.

1.  Roll/Frankenstein Quiz Chapter 5-7 on GC for 20 points

2.  Let's discuss this book.  You have to agree that it is pretty good!  Right?

3.  Kitchenette Building reading and TTSTCANDI


kitchenette building:  Gwendolyn Brooks 1963

We are things of dry hours and the involuntary plan,
Grayed in, and gray. “Dream” makes a giddy sound, not strong
Like “rent,” “feeding a wife,” “satisfying a man.”

But could a dream send up through onion fumes
Its white and violet, fight with fried potatoes
And yesterday’s garbage ripening in the hall,
Flutter, or sing an aria down these rooms

Even if we were willing to let it in,
Had time to warm it, keep it very clean,
Anticipate a message, let it begin?

We wonder. But not well! not for a minute!
Since Number Five is out of the bathroom now,
We think of lukewarm water, hope to get in it.
