The Quagmire

THIRD PART The Quagmire The quagmire was a shady place with many capins high as a great green wall that balanced stimulated for the wind, dry and twisted trees covered by great become entangled of trepadeiras, mosses, great mushrooms fought for space. A mantle of dark green silt covered the roots that jumped of inside of the land. To far one saw great small trees with its long arms opened for the sky in an shout of clemency of the suffocating mantle of the plants parasites that went down in long braids and went up as immense serpents. In the hollow trunks and decayed roots insects: strange scorpions, lacraias, beetles of all the formats jumped for the ground. (Not to be confused with Tottenham striker !). In the sky bees and mosquitos they dived inside in clouds of the capinzal.

Strange sounds saw, all the moment, to dive in the ears of our travellers, sounds as: to jam of dry twigs, alucinantes shouts, howl of the wind. An agonizing choir that fulled the quagmire all. When seeing that Antenor place gave a step stops backwards and stumbled at a trunk and falls of coast. Timepieces takes a slightly different approach. There lying it saw, for its astonishment, a great black spider preparing its teia. The spider ran of a side for the other with its long legs weaveeing a great mantle in form of net with a long wire that leaves a small orifice located in abdome the jenny, almost transparent. At this moment, a small fly, careless way, beat in the teia and were imprisoned, despaired insistently tried if to exempt, the more if it debated imprisoned more was, its agitation called the attention the spider that in great speed it dived against the fly it involved and it with a shroud. Scared, Antenor if raised quickly and if it played on of Gordon that slip and falls in the soil.

Mredieu Training

In the start the traces are ' ' effected of beginning for the simple pleasure of the gesture, the scribble is before everything motor' ' (MERDIEU, 2006, P. 25). , Later on to the motor sensrio period of training, Piaget (1971,) it affirms that the child already is skillful to keep regular rhythms and to show its first graphical traces, making to appear the scribbles that had given initial ticket to the infantile grafismo. In the evolution of the child, the scribble arrives as an informal drawing, without pretension to represent something, without scienter, ' ' we notice that the grafismo can be made in reduced spaces of the leaf or to occupy almost all its extension, distributing itself in several direes' ' (SEBER, 1997, p.23). In this period of training the infantile expression starts for, ' ' rocking movements, later revolving, determined in the origin for a circular gesture that it of the centripetal, opposing sensible o to the one hands relgio' '. (MREDIEU 2006, p.24). study of these first manifestations who is capital to want to understand the infantile art, therefore they condition all the future activity of the child and constitute true ' ' daily pay-histria' ' of the drawing. (MERDIEU, 2006, p.25) In this stage, to initiate the infantile grafismo the child passes for the phase of the scribble.

Marthe Bernson apud, Mredieu (2006) identifies three periods of training of the scribble: motor vegetative period of training, representative period of training, communicative period of training. Motor vegetative period of training – (for return of the eighteen months) – is the start of everything, the proper tracing of the child ' ' the pencil does not leave the leaf and these eddies that leave of the center correspond to a simple excitement motora.' ' (WALLON, 1950, p.5). Representative period of training – (between two and three years) – This period of training is distinguished for ' ' appearance of isolated forms, thus the scribble leaves simply of being motor' '.
