English lit is utterly devioid of any enjoymentWatch this thread
also if you want to make something then isn't english literature the wrong direction? idk though, I can sort of see where you're coming from
It's gcse It's something were forced to do. And they aren't really our own interpretations, because we use the same method for each one, and we are told to find examples of fear and beuaty in two poems yet most people are told to bring up the same points with the same quotes. In our class we share main quotes and points until we are all the same and creativity is stifled out. at my school we do both lit and lang, they are pratically the same with different texts.
I don't enjoy writing to deconstruct at all, however hard I try. Unless I'm driven by literature or music I enjoy I really struggle to deconstruct something and will be distracted by ideas and write 2-3 pages of creative writing. It's a real problem that I can't get rid of without a change to me. I don't want to get rid of my creativity. But english lit and lang are devoid wastelands of creativity to me. They take the magic out of writing. in my school if we don't fit into the mold and use preset quotes we are punished by falling behind and eventually you become me, struggling because you want to make what we have to deconstruct. I want to make something, while it seeems like we destroy the writing. whatever stance i choose. It feels fake, It feels fabricated. It never feels right to deconstruct something in the way we do. I want to see why something is good. Not how the writer conveys themes of "fear"
