GörselThe Rime of T he Ancient Mariner was written by English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

The albatross was a holy bird for them,but, The mariner shoots the albatross and a little later the wind stops and the ship is stranded for days… A ghost ship aproaches with aspector woman and her Death mate… and then life in death wins after seven days he sax that curse and yet he couldn’t die.Beyond the shadow of the ship,he watched the water -snakes..

  H e said “O HAPPY LIVING THINGS! ” no tongue their beauty might declare: A spring of love gushed from my heart,and I blessed them unaware…The curse is lifted and albatross falls from his neck and sinks.. The dead men awaken and mariner directs his ghostly crew north and then Mariner’s ship sinks




Some teachers have their rules and only they  know which topic we have.They don’t like take a risk and answer the questions…They feel that they are the perfect.whatever you say you never change their mind because they have dicipline,tabu…Perfect teachers don’t like it.They always creative and willingness to teaching and open mind like Mr.Kreating…

Our 7th topic was the Daniel Defoe’s robinson crusoe and Jonathan Swift’s A modest proposal…

Fisrtly, I want to begin Robinson Crusoe, we watched the crusoe’s film, it was very very excited!  He fell in love but his best friend loved same girl too .His friend was beaten by Crusoe and he died… He decided to go for away. He lived island approximately 28 years . He wrote journal for don’t forget using language because he couldn’t talked, and expressed what he experience there. He met the Friday.  

Firstly, They couldn’t express themselves and then Friday began to speak,they could understand each others.Finally,Crusoe went the Britain and hugged his best life…

And then we talked about A Modest Proposal..The arthur had two modest proposal.He critized that perid especially’ management’.

He explain his last lines ”I profess, in the sincerity of my heart, that I have not the least personal interest in endeavouring to promote this necessary work, having no other motive than the publick good of my country, by advancing our trade, providing for infants, relieving the poor, and giving some pleasure to the rich. I have no children, by which I can propose to get a single penny; the youngest being nine years old, and my wife past child-bearing.”       I loved author’s style.



43285b96b67fbad5af6fe5469e363081  Our 6th topic was the Eighteeth century;Agustan age.Whings and Tories,Rationalism,The Industrial Revalution.We talked about all of them but I want to talk The Industrial Revalution is one of the most interesting topic for me.

Industrial Revalution happened in England.This mean,some of people must work company,or transporting…Rich people was getting better,Poor people was getting worse.I didn’t like it.You think that children must work company.Only when they were 5 years old.They need playing game each other but they couldn’t…They worked with their family.At the same time;rich people had new car,new homes…They gave big party! What a nice period! I was very sad for this so I dont want to talk anymore…

 I want to talk about Coffee house ,what a big chance for people.People went to coffee house to learn news,social interaction,Talking about arts,economi…

You think that you drink a coffee and you read the book and then you talk about news with friends,very fantastic ! 🙂

They knew importance of social interaction and reading something…I really want to this coffee house in Turkey…

paradise_lost2  Our 5 th week topic was the John Milton’s Paradise Lost and John Dryden’s Macflecknoe.

Fistly; when we began the lesson  the teacher gave paper and he wanted to wrote this week topic,I had syllabus and I read the paradise lost from Sparknotes  but I couldn’t write perfectly.. It was great idea. All of the students can learn topis easily and effectively and then I had a ticket for Yalova so I missed the lesson 😦  but I learned and read some of things about Paradise lost now I’ll share for you..

It’s an epic poem.It written by John Milton.It is about the story of Adam and Eve dismissed form heaven because of eating forbidden apple..

After then god sent them into World.We learned that Everything is not love..We must think and finally act it…

Civil War And Restoration Period…


Our 4rd week was the Civil war and restoration period;Andrew Marwell’s to his coy mistress;John milton’s sonnet(on his blindness)…

Firstly, Teacher read the to his coy mistress..It was very Fantastic!!!He said that time is money so use it effectively .In that time some of the people didn’t want to write religion poems so they used a different types of title such as love,faith,hope…

And then Teacher read the John milton’s sonnet(on his blindness),which is about religious.He wrote the sonnet after he became blind.He asked the question to god and patience answered it.I think it was better than To his coy mistress. Patient’s answer  “You think God needs your work?he said God never needs our help and thousands of people serve him….It was very exactly! We never forget it;God never needs our help…

The Metaphysical Poets…

Third week our topis was The metaphsical poet;John Donne’s The Flea and Holy sonnet X George herbert’s sonnet …

I couldn’t come the lesson but I learned how they learned Metaphsical poet…They talked about characteristics of metaphysical poems and read the sample poems…It is very good idea.I wonder John Donne and I found a little knowledge about him.He was an English poet,satirist and cleric in the church of England.He  is considered the pre-eminent represantative of the metaphhysical poets….His works are noted for their strong,sensual style and include sonnets… I want to share The Flea …

                                                                                                                               The Flea

MARK but this flea, and mark in this,
How little that which thou deniest me is ;
It suck’d me first, and now sucks thee, 
And in this flea our two bloods mingled be.
Thou know’st that this cannot be said
A sin, nor shame, nor loss of maidenhead ;
    Yet this enjoys before it woo,
    And pamper’d swells with one blood made of two ;
    And this, alas ! is more than we would do.

O stay, three lives in one flea spare,
Where we almost, yea, more than married are.
This flea is you and I, and this
Our marriage bed, and marriage temple is.
Though parents grudge, and you, we’re met,
And cloister’d in these living walls of jet.
    Though use make you apt to kill me,
    Let not to that self-murder added be,
    And sacrilege, three sins in killing three.

Cruel and sudden, hast thou since
Purpled thy nail in blood of innocence?
Wherein could this flea guilty be,
Except in that drop which it suck’d from thee?
Yet thou triumph’st, and say’st that thou
Find’st not thyself nor me the weaker now.
‘Tis true ; then learn how false fears be ;
Just so much honour, when thou yield’st to me,
Will waste, as this flea’s death took life from thee
