Storyboard Text

  • I sometimes the writing in the margin is violent, sometimes threating the author, because its so hard to understand. If i could just get my hands on you, Kierkegaard, or Conner Cruise O'Brien
  • Some of my other notes are more negative, like the note in a copy of The Life of Emily Dickinson, "Don't be a ninny"
  • As a student my notes are more humble, only writing small simple notes like "Metaphor" and "Irony" across the page fifty times across paragraphs of A Modest Proposal
  • When I am in love with a writing I continuously and blindly cheer from the sidelines, writing things like "Yes." "You nailed it" "Absolutely."
  • College is where I really learned to annotate, writing "Man vs. Nature" on many text.
  • I have often taken the margin as my own, writing done my thoughts and feelings, as a way to show that I am not just lazy gazing across the pages.
  • I had never really read Joshua Reynolds, until i read him with Blake's annotations, his thoughts completely change the way you understand the story.
  • As i read the annotations left by the Irish monks, i understand how they are feeling and what they are thinking while they copied the Gospels.
  • There is one that i think of the most, it was written in a copy of Cather in the Rye, that i got from the library one summer. I can not explain how much my loneliness was deepened, when i found this page...
  • ...there were a couple smears and next to them in soft pencil, by a girl i would never meet "Pardon the egg salad stains, but I'm in Love."
