Friday Fun: Victorian Anthropomorphism



















Check out these neat Victorian trading cards over at BibliOdyssey. Hmmm... a girl could get lots of story ideas from these...

And a detailed definition of anthropomorphism, here...

The best kind of anthropomorphism!
This is a lot of fun and really strange.Where did you find this?

re: Gretel's blog
your French is better than mine!
And I'm Canadian AND my family is acadian French! I'm very impressed.

Jennifer said...

Eric-- Merci, vous-êtes trop gentil!

I actually read it better more than anything else-- unfortunately there aren't very many French speakers around here to practice with. (But luckily I get Paris Match via Canada!) I am kind of a foreign language fanatic. ;-)

Ooh, there are some gorgeous images there, a girl could indeed get inspired...


Good French! Mine is pretty basic school stuff, I am surprised I can remember as much as I do!

Why did the late Victorians early/ 20th century have a thing for frogs?
Froggie would a woo-ing go
Toad of Toad hall etc etc.
A beautiful picture though

As regards speaking French.
I failed French O level then went to France and passed it.
Now I speak it everyday - horribly badly - the Moroccans don't seem to mind.
I wouldn't dare speak it in Paris.......

Jennifer said...

Thanks, PG-- and I will check that out!

Elizabeth-- Hmmm... I wonder why that was, too. Personally I love frogs. Good for you for speaking French! I guess I would try it in Paris, but with a big smile and an apology as preface...
