scribner's.pngmurry.pnglewis.pngcrisis.pngboth.pngoverview.pngThe author and magazine that were the centers of influence were BLAST and Wyndham Lewis. Scribner’s magazine had a large center of influence as well but not as large as BLAST.

While authors had similar connections to the magazines, the magazines seemed to have greater importance. Especially in the case of Wyndham Lewis and BLAST, they have similar connections and are almost exactly the same. BLAST was the one that had more connections.

Murry from the Blue Review had few connections and edges. The Blue Review has more connections than Murry but it does shed light on the fact that they didn’t have a greater impact than some of the larger magazines.

One thing that was unexpected was the impact that the Crisis had didn’t have a large impact on what other people thought. If it did have a greater impact more people would be writing about it and would have more nodes. The amount of nodes from the Crisis was what caused further investigation. The nodes with the most connections are the art rather than the creator that made it. This means that people were more interested in the creation rather than the creator.

The National Training School

The advertisement argued that The National Training School was the best school for African Americans. It said that “in equipment and teaching it is not surpassed by any school.” What caught my attention was that words “surpass” “influence” and “destined.” The fact that a school surpasses the others really solidifies the argument that was originally stated. When it used the other two words it made it sound as if the participants in the schooling would become something great. These key words helped solidify and make a concrete argument along with the examples of classes. Some language that was unique was that it was written to sound like the African Americans were lower class. It stated that it was the best school for African Americans while being mum about whether it was the best in the country for everyone. The language was far from being unifying or uplifting as far as race is concerned. There was a large difference in the language there.

“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”

The poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T. S., Elliot is a poem about how the speaker is worried about how other people view him and more importantly, how his lover sees him. The theme of the poem overall is love, a love that drives the speaker crazy. This causes him to be very indecisive about odd things. As an example the speaker asks if he “shall part [his] hair behind? Do I dare eat a peach?” Asking if he should dare eat a peach seems odd but in his defense he is stricken with love for a person and only wants to please them. The beauty of this poem is that it shows the thought process of a person who is in love but doesn’t outright say that the speaker loves the person the poem is meant for. It shows the love by being indecisive. This is why the theme of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” is about love.

Eli Jones – Intellectual Introductions

Hello, my name is Eli Jones. I am from Tulsa so I commute to TU. I am a freshman working toward a computer science degree. This degree program is what brought me to digital humanities so I can get a deeper understanding. My interests and motivation come from curiosity on how things work and how they are made. Learning how things work motivates me so I can know how to fix things should they break down. Also when you know how things work there is a desire to make it work better than it did before. I am also a competitive person which makes me want to create things efficiently and better than anyone else can. This is what motivates me the most.
