The Final Project
Our class has focused and put a lot of emphasis on the perspective in which a story is told. I don't think that anyone would argue that the character that is telling the story has a lot of influence in how the reader perceives it. The idea of perspective is an important tool for the writer and if used properly can turn a good story into a great one.
For the finally project I want to focus on this idea of perspective and how, when a story is told from a different point of view, it can dramatically change the story for the reader. In a previous blog I used one of Colleen's ideas to write a passage from Carmilla in the character Carmilla's perspective. Obviously I will be using Carmilla as my book to do the final project. In my previous blog I took an excerpt from the book and simply wrote it in Carmilla's perspective but I think for the project I will go further and add some scenes for Carmilla's character. I am not sure which part of the story I will extend yet. I'm excited about attempting this project but I just hope that I am able to do justice to Le Fanu's book because Carmilla was one of my favorite books this semester.
