Best of American Lit

The best thing that I have learned this year is how to use technology for schoolwork. It made everything 10 times easier and it beets reading out of the text book. It gives us a new way to communicate with each other.

Derby Reportage

Story #1
Explains a race.
     It is very fast pace.
     Also intense.
May 2nd, 1970 Diame Camp was the first women to race in the Kentucky Derby.
     She inspired women to go for sports.
     Her horse's name is Fathom.
Uses himself in the article.
Faggot-A bungle of sticks to burn people who are homosexual. 
4,000 troops gathered at Vale because of the tennis protest.
HE couldn't rent a car because it was full but it got situated later.
the Steadman was waiting in the PressBox.
First time going to a Derby in 10 years.
Went off on a guy at the end of the story and said we don't need the Kentucky.

Johnny Cyberpunk

In the story it talks about a person named Johnny who is a data trafficker. HE even went to great lengths and put a chip in his head so that way he can have more memory and look back on things. He also has a shotgun. Jones is a cyborg and is used to crack the code and break into Johnny's bank. This is a postmodern and a cyberpunk story because it is a different type of story. having to do with hacking is also another way that makes it post modern and a cyberpunk story.

My Slaughterhouse

My Slaughterhouse

      Postmodernism is a different and very confusing style of writing. It breaks the fourth wall, and is not told in any order. In Slaughterhouse-5 Kurt Vonnegut writes a story about a man named Billy Pilgrim and Vonnegut does everything that Post Modernism is in the story. 
      Breaking the fourth wall is only used once in Slaughterhouse-5 and this is different than any other story. It makes the story confusing because the person talking to us is giving away information that we may not need to no yet. This is why Slaughterhouse-5 is a Post Modernism story because it breaks the fourth wall. Breaking the fourth wall can cause a lot of confusion.
      Slaughterhouse-5 is not told in any order and this is different than most stories because it is not in chronological order. An example is when Billy is in the hospital and then he closes his eyes and is back in the war. Another example is when Billy is with the Tralfamadorians and then back on Earth the very next day. This is why Slaughterhouse-5 is a Post Modernism book because it is not in chronological order. 
      Slaughterhouse-5 is Post Modernism because it breaks the fourth wall and is not told in any order throughout the story. These are just two of many techniques that use Post Modernism and Vonnegut uses them very effectively.
