I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?
You don’t consciously choose to wake up in the morning, you can choose to go back to sleep, but you still woke up the first time. Avoiding evil is not sufficient to make one virtuous because running away from your problems doesn’t solve anything, there can be courage in fear, and because everything we do is a choice. Ransom found that out the hard way. He ran away from his problems but he chose to have courage even when he was
Jack Levy claimed that “This absence of war between democracies comes as close as anything we have to an empirical law in international relations” (Levy, 1988, pg 662). This suggests that in the world of International Relations that it is very much accepted that true liberal democracies will not go to war with each other; even if they find themselves in conflict with one another, there will be no use of military force. Whilst there are many reasons behind the lack of military conflict, none have been so rigorously tested to prove causality. For example, it is incredibly unlikely for United States of America to ever be at war with the United Kingdom. This is partly because the liberal system and ideology on which they were and still are founded and developed forces a kind of interdependence which would make war a counterintuitive action for both sides.
Since they got back to being friends playing the sport they both love it gives the audience a happy and content feeling so they can put the book down and be okay that it is over. Both of these endings are completely different, but they both leave the audience content with the ending, making it so a sequel is not requested to help tie up loose
Even after all Dill did in the story, people still say he plays no real part in the novel; that he is just a character included for sentimental reasons by Harper Lee. As I have stated in the paragraphs above; Dill plays an important role in helping Scout becoming more empathetic and also in helping the plot develop. Another point I might add is the fact that Dill is an outsider. Dill is not from the prejudistic town of Maycomb; so we as readers are able to experience a different viewpoint through him. Unlike Scout, Dill has no prejudice against people who are ‘different’ from him.
The next generation of society is often a thing both taken into consideration with utmost importance at times, while others disregarded because of its non-influential impact on our lives however that does not mean it is not a vital aspect of our future and should be considered as a species' top priority. Dystopian texts are an example of the extent in which society must endeavour to save it and The Testament of Jessie Lamb, a novel written by Jane Rogers, is no exception. where immoral actions are taken to preserve the next generation from a man-made pandemic designed to halt the existence of future generations. Throughout the character impressions, feelings and the world moulded by Jane Rogers it is clear just how accurate he representation of scientific
I think that this is a fair assessment; Spielberg could have definitely focused more on the hardships rather than the fight of the lawyers. Though historically, the abolitionists really had to do most of the litigation because there really wasn’t much they could do after being captured and put in a foreign place. Imagine being in a completely new culture where no one understands you and you cannot understand them. There is not much you can do to fight for yourself; they had no other choice but to put their trust in the
His books have always been there when I was down and just something about them has a way of making my day seem better. I guess it makes me think at least my day isn’t going as bad as the people in this book. Stephen Kings books seem to have given me an escape when things got bad or when things got tough and I just needed to take a step back and relax for a second. I am thankful that Stephen King has written such wonderful books to help me through the hurdles in my life while I found ways to work through them. One day I would love to meet Stephen King and thank him for writing such amazing novels that have helped me through my life ever since my uncle had given me the first Stephen King book I had ever
Helmets are not a reliable safety source because, they become uncomfortable, they are not the best way to stay safe, and they don't prevent all trauma to the body. Some critics might say, Helmets should be used to prevent trauma and injuries to the head however, when you look at the facts, helmets aren’t really necessary. Horseback riders should not have to wear a helmets because they are not worth the time or money. Helmets
Having grown up in a racist environment, Richard is rarely able to make decisions for himself. He feels his situation unjustified but, unlike most young blacks, he never submits to white authority. Richard reveals his desire for independence when he states, “‘Ought one to surrender to authority even if one believed that that authority was wrong? If the answer was yes, then I knew that I would always be wrong, because I could never do it. Then how could one live in a world in which one 's mind and perceptions meant nothing and authority and tradition meant everything?’” (165).
This book caused me to read more books with substance and less books about a moody kid with mood rings and dried cherries, not that there were many books like that. This book gives me a lot of nostalgia and I like this book. I would also save this book because I’m probably the only one who
The Black Lives Matter movement doesn’t receive enough attention and some people just don’t care. The American’s who do not care would be considered “white privileged,” and the reason they do not care is because it doesn’t directly affect them. They never had to experience what most African Americans have to deal with on a daily basis. This editorial will not persuade the audience because it will lose its audience interest, because a lot of American’s never had to go through this, so it would be hard to relate
I do not believe that "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was the best movie because the battle scenes seemed less important to the survival of the majority of the characters, and the villains seemed non threatening. The battle scenes between Luke and Darth Vader in the original six movies appeared to be very important. Because Luke played such an important role in the Rebel Alliance and the Jedi Order, every battle he fought in, it was crucial that he lived. The villains in Star Wars: The Force Awakens seemed very non threatening. The leader of the First Order, General Hux was “all bark, no bite”.
I do not believe that Moondog’s mental state can be based solely off his described actions and clothing choices. According to the book, showing a dysfunction is not enough to assume one has a mental illness because there is a thin line between normal and abnormal behavior. Moondog does not show signs of being in distress or impaired due to the fact he has a goal of obtaining tips for playing his instrument. Though, he has chosen not to follow social norms, which could make one suspect an illness, it can be chalked up to him being just an eccentric person. So, without knowing about other aspects of his life, he cannot be deemed mentally ill.
Establish setting? I do not believe so, also it did not intersperse sung lyrics with spoken dialogue well or use songs to cut away from a particular strand of the story well. Also, it is essential that the production would improve by creating compelling, unique characters because they are the storytellers; there is no third person narrator. I would have improved to define the main characters clearly so that we know their goals as we follow them through the piece. Although, this does not mean the characters would have to be instantly likable, but it is important that it should have been understandable of what their motivations are, as this is how the audience could access the wider story.
