Here I have reviewed posts from my classmates in 19th Century Literature, which we studied this semester.

Peer review, Tibby

My goldfish is made of electricity

That was some trip! Just joking. A wonderful piece of writing about how literature can cause us to have epiphanies.. moments of enlightenment that can change your whole life. Your way of thinking will never be the same again.
You may wish to reread what you have written and edit. There is a whole passage that is repeated as well as a few typos or spelling errors. Good work though Mr Tibby.

Peer review MANIZHA LALEE Blog 4.

https://manizhalalee.wordpress.com/2016/04/09/blog-4/comment-page-1/#comment-3

Reading Dorothy Wordsworth’s Grasmere Journals and looking at this picture, I can see how the two marry well. Dorothy used a plethera of words to try to decribe the beauty of the place where she and her brother William walked. So too Glover has tried to paint everything he saw. Both are overwhelming to me, but both help me to understand the other, and the world in which they lived. Better not say too much more here as it is the sublect of my essay.

Peer Review 4th blog, emilynelson2016

Yes, Emily, I think I am starting to capture the whole essence of Romanticism. That is Freedom. I look at this painting and see the freedom you describe, then look at Frost at Midnight by Samuel Coleridge (477-478) and see the freedom that he longs for his baby to have.
Line 54 “But thou, my babe! shall wander like a breeze
By lakes and sandy shores, beneath the crags”.

That surely is the message, Be free! and celebrate the freedom that we fought so hard to bring you.

Peer Review The Importance of Having Style: The Most Hilarious Tragedy of the Age

https://barefootfairy42.wordpress.com/2016/03/22/the-importance-of-having-style/comment-page-1/#comment-51

Oh I do like the picture that you have chosen to include, that being of men with the faces, as masked removed to show blankness underneath. Its true to the text and sentiment behind it. Men and Women of that age were hiding their true selves behind the masks, but when they pulled them away, they found that they are indeed nothing of substance.
“According to Wilde, style holds the highest importance in the Victorian society”. I should think that it is not according to Wilde, but that the play is a parody of what society itself believes. But I can see that you mean, according to the text…
” I had much trouble choosing just one scene to right about” be careful about your use of words. it should be write about, not right about.
overall a wonderful blog though.

Peer review Sara Saladino

OK so I know this is Sara’s blog post for Shakespeare but I hope I can count it as a peer review.

Wow, What a personal post. Sometimes it’s hard to write these things, feelings, because in so doing, you have to admit that it is actually true. Does love really always run smoothly? I don’t believe so. But I believe that even when the rough times come along, love is strong enough to overcome the hard times.
I have just thought of an analogy that may be considered a Romantisist view of love. Love may be like a river, not because it runs smoothly, but on many other levels. It bends and winds to accommodate the world around it. People and animals may drink from your love to be themselves replenished, but the river runs strong. there is love enough for all. There are rocks in the river, which roll along underwater until they become smooth and the love can run right over them, not hampered in the least be the intrusion of the rock. There are times of drought, when love may seem almost dried up, and there are times of flood, when you feel overwhelmed by love. Love runs like a river to the sea and when we gather all the love in the world there is a pool that can overcome any obstacle.

Peer Review Manizha Lalee

Is all truth beautiful? Is all beauty, in fact truth. Many think that beauty means aesthetically pleasing. If this is the case, then seeing the truth in all things would be beautiful. For me there is beauty in a flower, but there is also beauty in a child’s singing, or laughing. There is beauty when we see love blossoming between 2 people, sometimes even when they themselves can’t see it. There is beauty when we see someone helping someone else in need, or less fortunate. Beauty has so many layers, so many forms.
