2018 THE MONSTER IS BACK!

CREATIVE WRITING COMPETITION: THE MONSTER IS BACK!!

Friday  9th February. COMPUTER LAB

Read the very last lines of the novel by Mary Shelley.

(…) Some years ago, when the images which this world affords first opened upon me, when I felt the cheering warmth of summer, and heard the rustling of the leaves and the warbling of the birds, and these were all to me, I should have wept to die; now it is my only consolation. Polluted by crimes, and torn by the bitterest remorse, where can I find rest but in death?   “Farewell! I leave you, and in you the last of human kind whom these eyes will ever behold. Farewell, Frankenstein! If thou were yet alive, and yet cherished a desire of revenge against me, it would be better satiated in my life than in my destruction. But it was not so; thou didst seek my extinction that I might not cause greater wretchedness; and if yet, in some mode unknown to me, thou hast not ceased to think and feel, thou wouldst not desire against me a vengeance greater than that which I feel. Blasted as thou were, my agony was still superior to thine; for the bitter sting of remorse will not cease to rankle in my wounds until death shall close them for ever.

“But soon,” he cried, with sad and solemn enthusiasm, “I shall die, and what I now feel be no longer felt. Soon these burning miseries will be extinct. I shall ascend my funeral pile triumphantly, and exult in the agony of the torturing flames. The light of that conflagration will fade away; my ashes will be swept into the sea by the winds. My spirit will sleep in peace; or if it thinks, it will not surely think thus. Farewell.”  He sprung from the cabin-window, as he said this, upon the ice-raft which lay close to the vessel. He was soon borne away by the waves and lost in darkness and distance. THE END

Now, imagine that (for unknown reasons that you may find out) he monster has come back!frankenstein

HALLOWEEN STORIES

This post contains the HORROR STORIES written cooperativily by the students of triennio linguistico. We’ve used the Google Docs as usual. For the new students of Terza I sent the tutorial I’d made, via TELEGRAM. 

We also watched this video

and, working in groups in class, we used the pack by Oxford University Press to build up the vocabulary & guide the students to conceive a plot.

 

Here’s a story by students of 3CLINBook titled 'The night of the judgment'Read this free book made on StoryJumper If you want to listen to some of the spooky stories you can read below from the Padlet, click on the PODCAST Spooky Stories we made using the App Spreaker.
Here’s a padlet with all stories. Well done my dear students!

It’s taken me a lot of time to read the, correct and monitor your editing but it was worth the effort! You can also access the padlet using a QRcode.
