My favorite quote of this week comes from Stephen Crane’s “The Open Boat,” which we discussed in our American Lit III class on Thursday.
If you have not yet read it, the story illustrates the plight of a group of men during a shipwreck. Here it is:
“If I am going to be drowned–if I am going to be drowned–if I am going to be drowned, why, in the name of the seven mad gods who rule the sea, was I allowed to come thus far and contemplate the sand and trees?”
What beautiful writing!
Have a great week, fellow Englishees!
