My first investigations

    Good evening everybody) Today I have created my blog. I have never used it before so it's like exploration for me, searching for lots of new info how to do this or that. I have found some of my fellow students, it's a pity that only a few of them,but I hope that till the end of the week or during the second one my list of people to communicate with will grow longer.
It's really instructive to create your own blog and be here and communicate. It wasn't a great difficulty for me to create my own blog. Thanks to the link it was rather simple. As for me I see lots of advantages of using it. Firstly, we'll be able to exchange our ideas and information. Secondly, we'll present our analises of stories and other people will be able to view them and comment. We'll unite studying, communication and it is really cute)
    Now I know the basics of using this blogger. As for the story that I will analize, it is "The Gift of the Magi" by O'Henry http://www.americanliterature.com/author/o-henry/short-story/the-gift-of-the-magi. There are different reasons why I chose it, but the strongest one is that last I wrote my course paper in literature study analizing humour in short stories by O'Henry. I was so absorbed in it and it was so interesting for me that I decided to continue my investigation.
    The title "The Gift of the Magi" really induces me to read the story. It's so mysterious and I think that the story will be connected somehow with the Bible. As far as I remember the magi gave gifts to baby Jesus: gold, frankincense and myrrh as a sign of their love and loyalty. If the story is somehow connected with the Bible it will be fascinating and extraordinary. I hope that my expectations will come true and after reading the story I will not only find  answers to my questions but also some thought-provoking ideas.
