In John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley, he used a tone that drew people in as a reader. Steinbeck is a humorous person portraying his sense of humor with, at most times, a sense of seriousness. Throughout the novel, Steinbeck used his humor to create a comical and entertaining tone. Steinbeck shows his comical side in many ways, especially when he is talking about his poodle, Charley. He somewhat makes Charley seem human when he says, "A wealth of combed and clipped mustache gave him the appearance and attitude of a French rake of the nineteenth century"(Steinbeck 124).
Finding Tufts was like grocery shopping: I had to pass through aisles of lackluster Wonder Bread before discovering the scrumptious sourdough I needed. I was captivated and surprised by the endearing personality that shone through the articles I read. For an institution, I found Tufts to be quite human. “Pax et Lux” is not just an aphorism above a doorway; the ultimate advice of the dean himself is to “be kind”. It was apparent that in addition to academics, kindness and character is of utmost importance, which assures me that at Tufts I will have the most comprehensive college
The ghettos are filled with the cry of protests with the “small round hard stones clicking” while he steps into the “trouser cuffs” and “cans”. The “amiable weeds” signify the peacefulness and friendliness the character 's mood is in the beginning. However, as the poet narrates and time flows, as soon as he sees “District Six” he knows that it’s his home. The home filled with the protest of his people under apartheid and the greedy whites enjoying their time of leisure and pax. The main character realizes his role in the society where the whites control all of the wealth and squatting in the land where “grass and weeds” and “Port Jackson trees” emerge.
A beautiful portrait of the fair is built with Larson’s detailed depictions of “the buildings, waterways, and scenery” (Larson 274) within this spectacle. The clear pictures painted in the reader’s mind transports them to this wonder-filled attraction. However, more disturbing images are depicted in subtle ways, like the fact that Holmes “often smelled vaguely of chemicals” (Larson 46.) An image of horror conjures within the mind of the reader at this seemingly minuscule detail. The beauty and novelty of fair existing parallel to the grotesque nature of Holmes’ past times can only be excused as pure and unadulterated dramatic irony.
Humor is a great way to include the audience into the ad but provides great entertainment. This decision would establish a connection with the viewers, grab the viewer’s attention, and allow the audience to remember the
The poem was a very entertaining and humorous. One of the main things catches the reader’s attention is how they the man from Ironbark reacted to the joke played on him. This poem was chosen because of its lively and enjoyable rhythm. This makes the reader feel a mixture of feelings such as anger when the barber pulls the joke, but humour from the reaction of the man from Ironbark finds out it was actually a joke. Overall it was a very enjoyable and
It is the master or rarely referred as Mr. Limbkins who ladled the gruel. In this case, the general conception of a fat, unhealthy, rich, mean, rude, and uncharitable master is true and is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about him. Furthermore, he responds the request for more gruel by Oliver Twist with, as the text describes, “The master aimed a blow at the Oliver’s head with the ladle; pinioned him in his arms; and shrieked aloud for the beadle.”(Dickens, 2). In addition, the master argued with Bumble and refused Oliver to give more gruel, the cook, “‘For more!’ said Mr. Limbkins. ’Compose yourself, Bumble and answer me distinctly.
The pie is described to “already” have a “tumbling audience”, and these expressions show how the pie is able to garner a substantial and excited following with ease, even from “small trucks” which are inanimate objects, presumably toys. The repetition of “will” in the third stanza also implies the absoluteness of the pie’s positive reception, which further contributes to the speaker’s bitter tone as the same cannot be said for his poetry. The speaker also states that his friends ask “why in the world did you make only one”, which suggests a demand for his pie, which is the contrary situation for his poetry. He then switches to a tone of resignation in the penultimate stanza as he is forced to accept the fact that
Short Story Within the inauspicious sands of the great desert nothing was safe. The sand swallowed up lost lovers, street urchins that had pockets filled with stolen coin, armies lead by blind leaders, and foolish children that strayed to far from home. Merchants seeking riches and missionaries of forgotten gods, all wound up with the same end. Kings of greed and unwavering men all begged for a quicker end. In the desert of sand bursting with great treasure only those who no longer fear death can walk through with a smile and a clean slate.
Advertisements are everywhere, on television, radio, social media, billboards, magazines, and even on yearbooks. On the other hand, would it not be nice if every advertisement an individual saw, read, or heard were actually true? Like using Axe body spray really did attract women or eating Snickers truly made one satisfied in seconds? Yet, most of the time the advertisements that seem too good to be true, actually are. In fact, countless of ads are only slightly true and instead filled with many common errors in reasoning, known as logical fallacies, a sneaky marketing technique companies utilize to trick a consumer into giving them their undivided attention and money.
