Peer Review #1 – American Literature

Hi Belle,
Great work on this entry. Transcendentalism is a concept that I also struggled with initially. As the lecture and the tutorials went on, I realised that it can be seen as a spiritual practice- like mediation.
Your paragraph on the convenience of modern living is very profound, especially leading into your last comments about not noticing the natural world around you, as you go about your day. What is great is that you are aware of this. Most people don’t give it a second thought. I wonder what Thoreau would think of the modern world we live in?
Keep up the good work! We’ve got this! 🙂

  1. Excellent peer review Brendon- supportive and engaged- when possible also try to make a suggestion for improvement.
    *Please attend to editing your work carefully. Here is what I have picked up:
    *mediation= meditation.
    PS I note you are way behind with your peer reviews.
    Also you haven’t set up categories for Creative and Critical Blogs so that I can’t find your entries in these categories. Can you please fix these asap? (and let me know when it is done)
