Penmanship: Fractional Reflection :: essays research papers
The narrator of Penmanship is a man madly in love in the art of writing. It is through entering the enchanting world of pen and paper that he is able to face the complexities of reality like social cancer (corruption), abandon (murder) and fiery emotions (love) with strength and confidence. He could feel a twinge of sorrow every time he mails a letter because he had voluntarily tending(p) a office a part of himself. I think for him (and may I boldly include everybody else who writes) that every word is carefully chosen to project, be it hinted or open for others to see, the personality, character and experience that molded him into becoming who he is at the present of writing.If he loves writing, why did he concentrate most of that love to unaccompanied on a fountain pen? Why not for the reader? The paper? It was clear from the start that the old Parker Vacuumatic fountain pen is sort of a heirloom therefore I wont question anymore why didnt he trash it for a new one. If I were t he narrator, I would overly fall for the fountain pen because it is the one I always use to materialize the thoughts, ideas and emotions I wish to convey. Paper doesnt matter since any fold up would do. Meanwhile readers, although necessary are not important because he writes on his own volition meaning it would be for his satisfaction first. Having readers is just one way for him to share that satisfaction by making them feel privileged to be remembered and cared for.The narrators encounter with Nora was a terrible one. She only used him and destroyed his writing principles in the process. She let his emotions for her grow so she can use it to get him to be an unsuspecting accomplice who will write the lies she weaved about herself for a certain Mark (probably an ex-lover) whom she wishes to in still guilt for leaving her. The deed totally upset him. The poor penman had his heart broken again into pieces and right away with a sullied principle to go with. He was filled with fil thy hurt and felt overcome with precious feelings. The only way for him to release those pent-up emotions from the burdening lies he had absorbed is through his pen, which already felt heavy with words waiting anxiously to be written. There are similarities with Jose Dalisays life and that of the narrator in Penmanship.
