Storyboard Text

  • Some are more casual saying things like "Nonsense", "Please!" "HA!" I remember this one time when i looked up from reading trying to imagine the person who wrote "Don't be a ninny" alongside a paragraph
  • sometimes the notes look like the person was angry with author and trying to figure out what was happening in the text. The notes indicate the frustration with writers like like Kierkegaard or O'Brien and they say, "why can't you make sense of what is written?"
  • Some notes are even fans who encourage the story by saying things such as "Absolutely!" to Dun Scotus and James Baldwin and others say things like "Yes" "Bull's-eye" "My Man" leavings things like check marks, asterricks, and exclaimation points along the margins.
  • Most students are more modest only saying little things along margin of the page, saying things "metaphor" along the stanzas of Eliot's or "Irony" fifty times outside the paragraphs of A Modest Proposal.
  • We have all taken a pen to the margin only to show that we were not lazily reading, but to show we were deep in thought and analyzing the book.
  • And if you've never written "Man vs. Nature" along the margin of a book then its time to take a step forward.
  • They say, you haven't rea Joshua Reynolds until you have read him enwreathed with Blake's furious scribblings.
  • Even Irish monks in their cold scriptoria, made marks along the boarders of their Gospels talking about the pain they were enduring while copying, a bird nearby, or the sunlight on their page. Anonymous men transporting themselves into the future.
  • A few greasy smears left on the page and next to them written in soft pencil written by a girl who was beautiful, I could tell, whom I would not ever meet wrote, "Pardon the egg salad stains, but I'm in love."
  • Yet, there was one notes I think about a lot, one that I can never leave behind, and it was written in a copy of Catcher in the Rye that I borrowed from a local library. When I was really lonely on a hot summer day, just before school, The world seemed sad before me until I reached one page.
