“Public Secrets” by Daniel was especially enjoyable for me. Like me, she is comfortable mix different mediums for the most effective communication possible. Doing this may turn some people off but I think it serves a greater good for the text. The multimodal reading engages the reader (“interpreter”) whether they like it or not and it also provides a more comprehensive understanding of the text and message being delivered. The play on black and white throughout the text had symbolic meaning for me. Perhaps it is supposed to remind us that the process of understanding isn’t just black and white. I wish more writers had a more fluid view on the delivery of his or her message and considered themselves “storytellers”, realizing they have more options than just writing.
