Cartas sobre la literatura / Letters about literature “Turtles All the Way Down”

Querido John Green, Primero leí Turtles All the Way Down cuando fue publicado y cuando estaba en el octavo grado. Desde entonces, no he estado leyendo mucho. Durante ese tiempo, yo y muchas otras personas que trabajan bien cuando se les dan buenas notas y la validación, perdimos interés en leer. Con más presión que … Sigue leyendo Cartas sobre la literatura / Letters about literature “Turtles All the Way Down”

A Letter to Jeanine Cummins | Una Carta a Jeanine Cummins

Dear Jeanine Cummins, We hear occasional sarcastic comments about “the drug lords in Mexico,” or “all of the murders” in Colombia, and at first they were just that--sarcastic and insensitive comments.  I was vaguely aware of the violence and terror rampant throughout Mexico and Central America, but blind to the reality of the migrants’ world--watching … Sigue leyendo A Letter to Jeanine Cummins | Una Carta a Jeanine Cummins

Una carta a Shel Silverstein…

Dear Shel Silverstein, Ever since my mother read your book The Giving Tree to me as a young child, its lessons and story have stuck with me.

Bécquer- “El Rayo de Luna”

"Creía que en el fondo de las ondas del río, entre los musgos de la fuente y sobre los vapores del lago, vivían unas  mujeres misteriosas, hadas, sílfides u ondinas, que exhalaban lamentos y suspiros, o cantaban y se reían en el monótono rumor del agua, rumor que oía en silencio intentando traducirlo."

Letters About Literature: to John Green

Dear John Green, The weight of schoolwork and forced reading for school has removed the ability to read for pleasure from the lives of virtually every student, including myself. My friends and I can all recount the times of our youth when we could all easily pick up a book and read cover to cover, … Sigue leyendo Letters About Literature: to John Green

Letters About Literature

Dear Danielle Paige, Reading for me has always been a constant struggle. My hyperactive mind could never settle down and focus enough to let me enjoy the stories. I was never able to explore the “different worlds” that people talk about being transported to while reading books. No book truly got a hold of my … Sigue leyendo Letters About Literature
