Nancy Mairs describes herself as a “cripple” and only that. In the passage, she describes her reasoning behind her fondness of the word “cripple” and not other terms more openly used by others such as “disabled” or “handicapped.” To achieve getting her message out she uses different tones and specific words. Mairs applied a positive tone when describing the definition of cripple. She makes the reader see “cripple” in a positive way referring to a Gospel and defining it as “a lover of words.” She even goes on to include her own personal opinion in which she claims she likes the accuracy of how it describes her condition. On other terms she switches to a negative approach ultimately, questioning how fit the words were to her current state.
Throughout the entire story, Ignatius displays gluttony in the amount of food he eats and arrogance in the way he views society and its people. Ignatius’s appetite knows no bounds. Near the beginning story, Ignatius makes his mother buy him a box of twenty-four jelly doughnuts. Patrolman Mancuso, who is visiting Mrs. Reilly to discuss the car accident, notices something strange about the same box of doughnuts: “She offered Patrolman Mancuso a torn and oily cake box that looked as if it had been subjected to unusual abuse during someone’s attempt to take all of the doughnuts at once. At the bottom of the box Patrolman Mancuso found two withered pieces of doughnuts out of which…the jelly had been sucked” (39 Toole).
She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468). This simile makes Lamott feel more relatable to the reader because this is a feeling that most inexperienced and discouraged writers go through. Saying things like “feel despair and worry settle on my chest like an x-ray apron” only connects the reader to Lamott even more (Lamott 469). Once the reader becomes engaged and forms a connection with what the writer is saying and feeling, continuing to read the essay is easy. At this point the reader wants to know what can be done to shake the feelings of “despair and worry” when it comes to

Examples of imagery are found in the lyrics such as, “You would not believe your eyes/ If ten million fireflies/ lit up the world as I fell asleep/ ‘Cause they fill the open air/ And leave teardrops everywhere.” There are many more found in the text such as, “ ‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs/ From ten thousand lightning bugs/ As they tried to teach me how to dance.” These lines could be a mixture of metaphor and imagery as well from the picture it paints with the descriptive lyrics and the non literal dream oriented lyrics. The fireflies represent a peter pan type of concept when states “Leave my door open just a crack/ Please take me away from here.” This sentence forms a metaphor as well because the concept is not to be taken literally. Repetition plays a part in this song due to the literary devices of getting the main point across. Repetition creates a dominating recurrence when it repeats the chorus mentioned previously, “I’d like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly/ It’s hard to say I’d rather stay awake when i'm asleep/ ‘Cause everything is never as it seems/ ‘When I fall
As people read literature, it can pose many benefits to them by offering help in their lives. One of these benefits is that it warns people about hubris and teaches them to happy with what they have in life. There are some classic writings, such as Harrison Bergeron, by Kurt Vonnegut, and Macbeth, by Shakespeare, which are prime examples of pieces of literature which have subliminal messages warning us to not be over ambitious. Additionally, there are contemporary writings, specifically an article about Trump, by Callum Borchers, which gives us examples of present day people who are being affected by their own ego. When people read others writing, whether it is contemporary or classic literature, they are taught about how it is human nature to always want more than they currently have and the dangers that can arise from not being humble, which helps shape their identity and can be used as a guide throughout life.

We busted it up, and chased the children up the hollow. “ (Twain, 22) In this instance, Huck and the rest of the gang show their disrespect for such common folk practices as going to church or a sunday School picnic. Furthermore, throughout Huckleberry Finn, there are many instances of Huck and Jim exercising their strong superstitious beliefs. In one occasion, a spider is crawling up Huck’s arm and “ I flipped it off and it lit in the candle; and before I could budge it was all shriveled up. I didn't need anybody to tell me that that was an awful bad sign and would fetch me some bad luck.. “ (Twain, 13) In this odd episode, Huck flicks a spider off ofis arm into a lit candle.
The audience knew the plan for Beatrice and Benedick, but their own confidence in their wit betrayed them. Also, their witty comments to each other make for highly entertaining moments. Claudio allows other people to fool him into believing untrue things, which leads to dramatic altercations with numerous characters. Dogberry’s unwittiness leads to a coincidence that saves the whole play and creates an ironic feeling that the least intelligent character discovered the evil plot. “The wit of Shakespeare’s play informs the words spoken by the characters, places the characters themselves as truly witty and intelligent, inappropriately facetious, or ingeniously witless, suggests the lines of action these characters will
