Hybrid Form: Dear Rosa, class notes
Dear Rosa is written in a personal letter form to an airport security personnel. The letter contains:
Description writing of a matchbox
Personal manifesto of being a feminist
A little bit of instructional writing
As a reader, I felt as if I was being invited to become as one, especially when the writer mentioned modern women. I am too. I was invited to see beyond the obvious and the properties that made the matchbox a “dangerous weapon” but to look at it deeply and see that there are new properties in it that is beyond what it was originally developed.
I liked how every piece of item is related to something personal and that allowed me to connect with the writer.
As a hybrid form, the differences are in the details that I didn’t notice until it was pieced apart in class. This is the type of writing I really liked.
