I think that this week I did a really good job at analysing the possible analogies in the book and writing about them. I usually kind of just zone out when I read and don't think about the analogies as much for this book, or I just don't know how to put them into words. This time a lot of my McMurphy essay was about an analogy that I thought the book was trying to put out, and I think I did a good job at discribing it.


  1. This is good news! I'm looking forward to hearing the analogy you came up with. Part of being a good reader is making real-life connections, and it sounds like you're doing that with this book.

  2. Its good that you accomplished something you normally wouldn't do. Also was making more analogies one of your goals?

    1. Making analogies wasn't one of the goals that I had written down, but I started to notice that people were coming up with analogies more often than I was, so I wanted to work on it.

  3. Analogies are a good way to relate to characters, stories and experiences through your own personal Cooper lens. Analogies can be interesting to craft and enlightening, even surprising, when you discover how you connect to a particular character, story, situation, etc. This is one way to find or give your ideas meaning. Not sure that's helpful, but I think you're on a good track.
