ideas from Amanda

For class we are reading the rough drafts of each other’s lit reviews. Amanda and I are both writing on voice, so I’m reading her rough draft and offering feedback. I’m also gonna check out her sources, because they look really helpful.

Elbow: calls for an “audible, dramatic, distinctive, and authoritative” voice which fits social-constructionist philosophy in “Voice as a Lighning Rod for Dangerous Thinking” (5)

Elbow in Intro to Landmark Essays: “we write best if we learn to ove flexibly back and forth between on the one hand using and celebrating something we feel as our ownvoice, and on the other hand operating as though we are nothing but ventriloquists playfully using and adapting and working against an array of voices we find around us” (47).
