This excerpt gives impeccable evidence as to why people who try too hard to reduce the complexities in their lives to simplistic terms by telling us a nostalgic memory from when Quindlen was very young and what people used to do and say back then regarding lightning bugs.

In the short story, “A sound of Thunder”, Ray Bradbury used figurative language to make a bigger impact on the story. When Eckels goes into the office he sees and hears, “... A sound like a gigantic bonfire burning all of Time, all the years and all the parchment calendars- all the hours piled high and set aflame.” The author, Ray Bradbury, wanted his audience to have a specific image set in the audience’s head. By using a simile he help the reader imagine how Eckle’s is going to get to the past.
The theme of Ray Bradbury's "A Sound of Thunder" is enhanced by his use of foreshadowing throughout the story. The story follows a man named Eckles on his journey to the past on a hunt for a real dinosaur. As the events in the past unfold, Eckles ultimately alters the future forever by taking a small step off the Path. The path is there to make sure the time travelers do not affect the future. Unfortunately, Eckles learns the true consequences of his actions when he returns to a changed future.
In the story “A Worn Path” the author Eudora Welty uses many symbolism that advances the development of the story by going into detail about the harsh conditions she has to travel thru just to get the medicine that her ill grandson needs. While traveling to the medical clinic in Mississippi she encounters unusual situations that “demonstrate great courage and determination when she overcomes every obstacle in her way” (May), even facing a hunter who points a gun at her. When reaching the clinic she was disrespected by the staff and was treated as a “charity case”, but she withstands the humiliation to get her grandson the medication. When heading out on a cold December day she has to walk for about half a day. She demonstrates her fear of the wild animals delaying her travels by talking with them and asking them to keep the wild animals out of her path.
In conclusion, the author uses many type of sentences and punctuations to make the story more interesting. The theme of the story is that it was a suspenseful one. It is important to the readers because it informs and entertains them with an impending threatening story. It is also important because it gives so much detail about what happened in the sequence of the main
The story, "Marigolds", has a beautiful message within the sad story that some may see it as. But if you look beyond the fact that it takes place in a barren town of poverty, you can see the beauty within the Marigolds, which represent much more than one may assume. When I read this story, I looked at it in a couple different ways and found a few different ways that the theme could be understood, still adding up to one theme. I also found a couple different ways that the marigolds could be represented. For example, there is beauty everywhere, everyone must learn to grow up, and one cannot have compassion and innocence.
I taught a lesson on theme. In the lesson I talked about what theme is and how a novel can have more than one them. We discussed that some themes are very direct when others are indirect. Connecting this information back to the book Anthem we are reading. We pulled out four major themes such as Conformity, Freedom, Privacy and Enlightenment.
That quote shows just a little bit of how the story gets exciting and thrilling. The author uses both the suspense and the thrilling aspect to convey his theme. The short story, “A Sound of Thunder” uses two separate time periods, snobbish and cautious characters, a breathtaking and frantic plot, and multiple forms of conflict to convey his theme of showing the Butterfly Effect and demonstrating how causes for your actions can sometimes be gigantic.
Making mistakes is an important part of life. We learn from our mistakes. Mistakes are the best lessons of our life. They are something that happens unintentionally and without the knowledge of a human being. The only way mistakes can be avoided is to never do anything.
