Storyboard Text

  • My notes that are in the margins of every page, and are angry with the writer. The notes are directed towards Kierkegaard, or Conor Cruise O'Brien, because I don't understand what they are saying.
  • Other comments are more nonsense "Please!" "Ha!!". I once remember reading "Don't be a ninny" and tired to imagine what the person that wrote that looks like.
  • Some students notes are much bolder. "Absolutely!" they read, directed to Duns Scotus and James Baldwin, "Yes!" "Bull's-eye!" Many check marks, asterisks and exclamation points written in the margins
  • Some students are more modest with their notes only leaving traces in the margins. One notes "Metaphor" next to a stanza of Eliot's. Other notes the presence of "Irony" fifty times"
  • If you have graduated college without writing "Man vs. Nature" in the margin of a text, now would be a good time to do so.
  • We have all used the white margin area to write our notes occasionally. To show that we have actively read and understood the text instead of sitting in an armchair, just flipping pages.
  • You have not read Joshua Reynolds, until you read it with Blake's furious notes in the margins of the text.
  • Even the Irish Monks wrote in the margins of the gospels. While re-writing a book they notice a bird singing in the window, and the sunlight that lights up their page. They don't realize the important and longevity of which the books they are coping.
