For chapter 7 I was the literary illustrator so I had to choose a different role for this posting. I chose to be a Passage Master. The passages I picked are as follows: p. 85-86 “I’ve always wanted to perform onstage, ever since I was a little girl. And now Count Olaf has given me the opportunity to love my lifelong dream.” I chose this passage because of its meaning to the story. It shows that Count Olaf is trying to be nice to everyone around him for some reason. I honestly don’t feel that Count Olaf is giving Judge Strauss this opportunity out of the goodness of his heart. It makes you wonder what his motives are. p. 89-90 “I think you should never be allowed inside this library again, at least until Friday. We don’t want a little boy getting big ideas.” I chose this passage because it raises my suspicions about Count Olaf and raises many questions. Why does it matter if Klaus reads that book about law before the play? What can possibly happen on Friday that would be ruined? What is it that Count Olaf is up to? p. 91 “The man stood up again and put both his hooks in front of Klaus’s face, letting the light from the reading lamps reflect off the wicked-looking devices. ‘Now, if you will excuse me, I have to fetch our poor orphan siblings’.” I chose this passage because of its meaning. I don’t understand why the man from the theatre group refers to the children as poor since it is quite obvious that no one feels bad for these children. However they are also not poor in the sense of money because of their inheritance so what does this man know that we don’t? I also think that it is a great description of the hooks right in front of Klaus’s face. You get a great image in your mind.
