Who in this mortal world does not fear death? May it be one’s own death or the death of their loved one, this subject invokes a certain heaviness in one’s heart. In most cases, the latter is something much more excruciating to the human soul, since losing someone lets one feel it in life, whereas one feels nothing at all after death. This situation is prevalent in “Variations on the Word Sleep”, a poem by Margaret Atwood. In this poem, the speaker craves to be with the audience even in their sleep and is willing to go through lengths to do so, such as bringing them back to life.

The Journey to Self-forgiveness of a Morally Ambiguous Character Guilt is like a scar; it is a painful reminder of an unpleasant situation and is ugly until accepted and moved on from. However, unlike some scars, guilt can dissipate over time as individuals learn to forgive themselves for their wrongdoing. Guilt, along with self-forgiveness, is frequently seen with morally ambiguous characters, such as Amir from Khaled Hosseini’s novel The Kite Runner. In the story, a young Amir fails to protect his friend Hassan from the antagonist, Assef, which results in the profound guilt that follows him into his adult life.
Reading an essay must have two sets of eyes, one from a reader and another from a writer. I as a reader, found Rodriguez’s essay rude and relatable; his way for describing what happened to him shared a type of equality with me in a different perspective. On the other hand, reading his writing as a writer I can fully appreciate his way to weave ideas and enjoy vivid descriptions about his life. Rodriguez’s Essay embodies different writing techniques, such as voice and tone. His voice is direct and focus, he describes his life as plain as possible and describes each event so that the reader can follow him through his life.
Kindergarten through third grade I attended Rozelle Elementary school. The school had two different buildings, it was the kindergarten through second grade and then the third through sixth grade.

I met Francesca Vitolo a little over 4 years ago, while she was a high school senior. Her mother is now one of my closest friends, but our friendship was fairly new when Francesca became an active part of the package. Let me make this a little clearer. I don’t have children, my niece, like the children of my other friends, are in their mid-30s, so bridging a 2-generation gap seemed somewhat daunting to me. when I was a teenager, I’d perceive joining my mother and a friend on a social interlude as more of a punishment than something I’d volunteer to do!
The Guardians is similarly structure to Revolution in that it makes use of short stories and asides to tell the whole tale that the author is attempting to convey to the audience. However, there is a key difference. Where Revolution was broad in scope The Guardians is focused. In Revolution it was Deb’s complex relationship with George and her coming of age on the road. In The Guardians the focus too lies on a complex relationship between the author and Harris; however, the two tales differ in that Manguso approaches her tale through the tragedy of her friend’s death.
This reading went well for me because when I began to read more of the novel, I was actually able to answer my previous question before, making me better understand what I’ve read. However, the most challenging thing was the jealously that the mother had experienced towards Dana because I can actually relate to her and her obsession of their loved one to notice them. The strategies that I used to figure some things out would include me reading at a slower pace to better understand what I was reading, as well as analyzing on how the title can relate to the pages I was reading.
