The message that was interpreted was to cherish your loved ones, especially elders. Cherish the time remaining time you have with them and don’t waste it on greed and not showing respect. No matter what they do and what they say, they always love you and you should show the same love back to them. The grandfathers folk tale really shows this message since he was first mistreated and soon, his son and son’s wife realized they were wrong all this time to be treating him the way he was being treated. In the abuelitos poem, the author shows that he is sick and doesn’t feel as if he is loved, but they author makes him feel loved through the words she decides to
I wouldn’t do a rough draft, an outline, I wouldn’t do anything but the final copy. Now my writing process consists of notes on what I can possibly put in my paper, an outline, two rough drafts edited by two different people and a final copy. Writing papers in college is a lot harder than it was in high school, but my paper quality has improved a lot. From my new writing process I have learned how to structure my sentences better, how editing helps myself and how every piece of information is important for a solid paper. In the beginning of the semester, outlines were a struggle to write, I was convinced they were pointless and useless.
As Victors dads “only son”, it seems to be his duty to be, and must always satisfy him. Also the fact that Victors father “took a Bible” to a father and son trip shows that there is no fun or affection between them. It could be why Victor holds on to the Bible later in the poem. Linking to this, “Blessed are the pure in heart” is ironic as purity and a virtuous childhood/life has led to a murderous
From a young age, Huck was taught never to help a slave. He hesitantly goes along with Jim, knowing it is a disgrace to help or even befriend a slave. Surprisingly, Huck and Jim become close friends throughout the book, to the point where Jim states, “Dah you goes, de ole true Huck; de on’y white genlman dat ever kep his promise to ole Jim.” (Jim, Chapter 6). With Jim saying this, Huck feels incredibly guilty for having the thought of ever turning Jim in. Jim completely trusts Huck and sees him as a friend, and they continue to travel
Furthermore, this displays just how supportive Jeremy is as he does not remain silent when he realizes that his race is the cause of the torment towards the Logan children and how he remains to follow his new acquaintances even if it means that he is forcibly loathed by others in the process. Once again, in the novel, Jeremy gives a thoughtful apology by giving a gift when he realizes that he was wrong for not standing up for Cassie when she had been forced to apologize for an incident not being her fault by Jeremy father, Mr. Simms. According to the text, “Jeremy, who had heard, flushed a deep red and quickly handed Mama a small burlap bag. “I—I brung them
This technique is clear in the following extract: “As the days went by, Peter’s father became very ill. He whispered, ‘You must be brave, for both of us. Promise me you will keep our treasure safe.’ ‘I promise,’ said Peter, and he gripped his father’s hand through the long night.” Wild gives no further insight into how Peter or his father is feeling or what they are thinking; instead the reader is encouraged to draw on existing knowledge to interpret the feelings and meanings portrayed. Wild and Blackwood have conveyed realistic characters in ‘The treasure box’ using the techniques discussed to successfully build a compelling story which draws on the readers prior experiences and emotional responses to draw

I believe I had a hard time with this because of all the Jewish vocabulary. I feel as if the reader has a good background about the Jews with an understanding of the religion and dialect, it will be easier for the reader to understand this novel. There were multiple occasions where I had to backtrack and reread a section several times to fully understand what was going on. However, I do believe the book gets easier to read and understand as the book progresses on. I believe Potok used a great amount of detail in The Chosen.
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

Initially, when I first walked into class, I had no respect for writing papers or the class. However, as the weeks progressed and the weeks went by, I’ve slowly gained the respect that English deserves. While it is still fairly difficult for me to formulate my thoughts and turn them into cohesive, well-structured sentences and paragraphs, I now know that most of what I write now is so much better than what my writing was when we initially started. It is through practice and revision that my writing has improved. The moment we walked into class, we were faced with the first assignment, “Native Americans: Before and After.” I pondered the significance this assignment had to do with the class, as it seemed pointless at first glance.
