Sheer Sheer Ignorance

Remember a previous post I had regarding an Anonymous comment?
This one here, I said, "I don't know why I still allow anonymous comments."

I know in my side column I listed my pet peeve as ignorant fools, but seriously, sometimes they just make me laugh because of their sheer denseness.

Maybe don't understand literature stuff. Maybe they just are not literature people. Yea... I mean this is the internet, right?

What is first person and what is third person? And since there is a first and third person, there should also be a second persond, right? The answer to the latter is yes. First person's writing is the usage of "I". Today I went to the beach, I ate a lot of crabs, I whatever whatever. Autobiographies are all first person writings. Some authors also use first person's writing to invoke greater response and emotions from their readers. The downside using that would therefore be that viewpoints of the narration would be narrow, only from the narrator's point of view.

Third person is

*damn* blogger ate up my post!!! I'm not going to type everything again, neither am I go to give my blow by blow analysis fit for a seminar paper again.

So read
and these
and formulate the themes again.

I shall say it's only about stagnanted relationships and depression, mostly pertaining to women. If I've the time tonight maybe I'll come up with another blow by blow analysis.
