What I understood

The aim of this study was to investigate how traumatic event influences the poetical expression of L2 learners. This research was conducted by a Japanese public university. In the research, participants can choose if they write poem in relation to earthquake. As the result, the author found that their writings tend to be written from first person perspectives and use the present tense. In addition to this, L1 transfer occurred such as the influence of Japanese linguistic and rhetorical knowledge on L2 poetic texts. We can say the earthquake poetry their direct response and emotional concerns for their traumatic life experiences.

My favorite poem and why I chose it

My favorite poem is ”Look up!” because it strongly shows poet’s hope or lights in the future. I was very moved by this poem in terms of the following reason. First, ‘people are in surprise People in sad’ this shows poet’s sadness, however, in the next paragraph it turns into hope or light. Of course he is not in sadness but feels bright future in his brain. And who is like him will show us his hope and open a new world we can’t find. That’s why I chose this poem. I’m strongly looking forward to his world and want him to write a poem after several years.

What I learned from this poem is that keeping on believing beats sadness. And action is very important thing as the means to relieve human’s heart.

Thank you very much. Joji Ishida

Hello, I am Joji Ishida. I will post my idea

on the article I read in a class of the last week.

First of all, I will refer to what I understand on this article. There is Narimatsu point. First, I found poem has many aspects like culture, history, and so on. Of course, there are each ways to study their genres. For example, if you study a certain poem as historical poem, you need learn about archeology. Second, poem shows us unique system of languages. By researching it, we can approach a goal what are languages.

It was little difficult for me to understand this article. However, I was so impressed by the idea on poem. I think poem is one of very important aspects of languages. Because it has a unique system. In addition to this, it tell us the feeling or what someone saw, what someone felt and so on. It seems to be natural. But, it tells us them in detail.

That all, Thank you.
