Tag Archives: telling a story


When thinking about Sandy Baldwin’s “The World Order: Basra“, I related the E-Lit work to telling a story to a child. When parents, guardians, or even just elders look to explain an important lesson to children them usually use a short story. This is because, like Calvino’s horse emblem, a story about an everyday event is relatable to children. If one were to try to¬†explain the important lesson in conversation, the children would most liking become confused and miss the point. The E-Lit work is trying to convey a deep thought, but must use a common media to explain it as quickly as possibly. This is like telling a child a story. The story, like the destroying of the words in the poem, convey quickness.
