Ultimately, the central purpose of an author’s novel is to engross the reader, by writing in a genre and movement that is appropriate the book. Appropriately, Kurt Dinan engages the reader with both a Mystery genre and Postmodernist elements in his novel, Don’t Get Caught. Postmodernists believe that traditional authority is false and corrupt, and the central theme of Don’t Get Caught is that the powerful students play pranks and humiliate the less influential students. There exists a social elite club known as the Chaos Club that plays pranks on the school and faculty, and nobody can figure out the leader of the club is or who the members’ are.
Pap is a free man who takes it for granted especially when he takes his anger on African Americans and his own son. He isn’t well educated but this quote by Huck is a hint towards Paps good side. “For what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards others”. Huck never had that great of an education so how is this coming from his mouth. His dad must’ve told him about these things, since Pap has made many mistakes in life he has a good side to himself.
Diction varies between text as a children’s novel will have less advanced word choice than an academic paper. In Bill Bryson’s “How You Became You”, the diction plays a major role in advancing the purpose. The usage of words in this essay is very important as the author need to find a fine balance between alienating the audience through complex words and phrases and completely losing all credibility by sounding too lax and ignorant. Bryson skillfully maneuvers through both extremes and is able to entertain the audience while sounding knowledgable. Once again, we can look to the beginning of the essay for an example of Bryson’s diction.
Though Capote rarely, if at all, explicitly disparages Hickock or laudates Perry, his tone and overall construction of the book subtly undermine the reader’s morals, subsequently leading them to sympathize for Perry. Through Capote’s exquisite diction and use of phrases such as “flawlessly devised,” he befittingly portrays Hickock’s lack of remorse . Out of context, the words themselves suggest Dick was a satisfactory deviser, however, upon closer inspection, Capote’s disparaging tone shines through, enabling the reader to discern Dick’s impenitent actions, establishing Perry as the more humane of the two. Due to Hickock’s callous personality and Capote’s admiration for Perry, the author’s difficulty masking his contempt for Dick invokes a seeping bias,
The narrator is an extroverted man who's going about his life in the easiest way possible. He’s kind, social, has a good reputation but has some issues for standing up for himself. He’s overly sympathetic to his employees to the point that he cannot bring himself to replace them. Later on in the story, when Bartleby no longer work for him, the Narrator can’t help but still feel responsible for the ex-scrivener. His genuine sense of human compassion is what makes him a relatable character.
Oscar Wilde, author of the book “The Picture of Dorian Grey”, declared, “The books the world calls ‘immoral’ are the books that show the world as it is”. Several parents have concerns that the book “The Call of the Wild” is too much for teenagers, and that is should not be a part of the high school curriculum. However, I believe that it is important for all teens to be exposed to the real world. In addition, most often teens have been exposed to, or at least heard about, many of the topics discussed in this classic book. Also, this story is timeless, and helps to teach students important lessons that will help them in the future.
Lennie’s kindness affects how people within story treat him. He gains the company of George who looks after him and it makes the ending all the harder to accept. This is because of his kind heart and how he doesn’t mean to do the bad things he does do. The second character trait Lennie possesses is innocence.
Embracing the ego, Marlow is only concerned with realistically satisfying his id’s desires, namely trying to meet Kurtz. This transition is first apparent in Marlow’s interactions with the cannibals on the boat. He considers them to be “fine fellows” as “they did not eat each other before [his] face” (75). At this moment, it is evident that Marlow’s moral standards have diminished as he now considers the primitive cannibals to be of the same stature as their civilized European counterparts. Thus, in trying to accomplish his mission of meeting Kurtz, Marlow will even support cannibals as long as they help him to achieve this goal.
Though the student implemented modifications to the paper (tweaking of words, change in sentence structure, etc.), the teacher noted that the majority of the paper was copied verbatim. The teacher affirmed that she had found incriminating evidence of the plagiarism and thus, scheduled to meet with the student. When confronted, the student alleged that he was uncertain as to how cite the passage. By choosing to do so anyway, the student demonstrated poor judgment. Professor Thomas outlines this particular scenario to demonstrate the difficulties in discussing and teaching about academic integrity in school.
Mark Twain’s utilization of Huck as a narrator is a key part in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck’s life is very easy to understand and follow throughout the story. The story would’ve been completely different if anyone else was the narrator. Twain uses Huck effectively as a narrator because we can sympathize with him more than we could with Jim, the many things he can do that Jim can’t, and through the hardships that Huck, Jim, and Tom face.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a novel that should still be read by all American high school students because of the history, characterization, and Twain’s remarkable growth as a writer. History is important to students everywhere, and Huckleberry Finn is most definitely an example of history. Many people believe that the novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ruins the minds of students and that they would “go astray” because of the language, including the “n” word; what many people do not realize is that Twain was using the language that people from that day used.
Why Would a Good Novel be Kicked out of the Classroom? A trashy and racist book wouldn 't be allowed in classrooms. The novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, written by Mark Twain, is getting a lot of negative talk about. The dominant problem that students, parents, teachers, and even professors, face , is the usage of the n-word.
Also this book can prepare students for the outside world and how to strive for what you want in this challenging society. Although many people feel that Romeo and Juliet should not be taught in high school and have logical reasoning to back up their opinion I feel that it should still be taught due to the reasoning I have previously provided you with prior to this conclusion. Finally I actually like Romeo and Juliet and admire shakespeare for having the imagination to be able to write this and create one of the most unexpected plot twist in play
