That is the main purpose to most autobiography, to spread what you did in your lifetime to other people. The reason Sedaris wanted to spread his particular message was to inform his audience of why he did the things he did during his life. Sedaris throughout “A Plague of Tics” explains why he did all the odd things he did. He felt compelled to do every single one of them, or else he would suffer from paranoid thoughts about what would happen otherwise. Specifically he was inform his audience that it is ok to be strange, even if it means others look at you in a different light.
“Yossarian was in love with the maid in the lime-colored panties because she seemed to be the only woman left he could make love to without falling in love with” (). Throughout Joseph Heller’s novel, Catch-22, sex is illustrated as an escape from the bureaucratic and cold war which the characters are stuck within. Though Yossarian manages to become close to many of the females which he spends his time with, Yossarian treats love as a desirable escape which is detrimental. As an effect, though Yossarian seeks out love throughout the novel, he either falls completely away from love or manages to come just short of it. This is seen multiple times throughout the novel with a few critical examples being Yossarian’s relationships with the maid, Nurse Duckett, and Luciana.
Golding through his use of symbolism clearly shows the movement from order to chaos throughout the novel. Unfortunately this idea that life can slip into chaos from order is not only fiction like Golding’s novel but the truth is that it has been a reality in some countries throughout the world. But hopefully in these cases in the future happy ending stories will be true ones rather than fictional ones. Nevertheless it is usually good that conquers evil and that more positives should be taken from stories rather than negatives.
Part of this is due to the length of the Pardoner’s tale. There was not a lot of time to develop a background story and really intice the readers before the ending of the story. It was also very low action when compared to the Knight’s tale. It did have some chasing, drunkenness, and murder, but again all these actions were such underdeveloped events that did not allow the reader to get emotionally invested. As a result of this, the Pardoner’s Tale did not entertain the reader as the Knight’s tale
Calixta’s levees are about to break, “If this keeps up, Dieu sait if the levees goin’ to stan’ it! ,” she exclaimed (155).

Sherman Alexie uses indirect characterization and antihero literary devices in order to portray the differences between a father and a dad, and what a true dad should be, in the book “Flight”. This book is about a teenager named Zits who lost his parents at a young age and started traveling down a violent path. Then when he was about to commit a serious crime he started to time travel through different people’s bodies teaching him how to be more compassionate towards others. Alexie encourages the readers to be caring towards others and know that all life is sacred no matter who they are or what they’ve done. This is shown towards the end of the book when Zits thinks about what he has learned after his journey.
Having an affair with someone with whom you had a lusty past shouldn’t be a surprise and should also be something that must stay between one another unless one feels guilty of what they did. To begin, the theme of adultery is introduced in the very beginning of the story, when Alcee asks for the shelter in Calixta’s house. The author very vividly shows that Calixta still has feelings for her ex-lover. As Chopin writes: “Come ‘long in, M’sieur Alcee” (Chopin 111) and immediately Calixta creates the situation where adultery is possible because she agrees to let in a person she still has feelings for.
The message or theme of the book is the will to live. King gets his message across by showing how far of lengths the teenagers would go to live through and win The Long Walk. A time in the book where this is shown, is when the boys discussed how they would throw themselves into the crown so they wouldn’t get shot when they got to tired to walk. Another time this is shown, is when the teenage boys conserved as much energy as humanly possible so they could survive until the very end. We will all die at some point and money doesn 't buy you happiness is what King wants you to learn after reading the

One night, Mildred has friends over to watch a show in the
Yuanyi Yi Per. 8 Unbroken As a summer reading, I choose to read Unbroken.

The author made this biography so that when you read it you read it you go "really I never knew that" or "I thought this happened because of this reason not because of that". For example on page 14 it talks about how when Thomas (Abraham 's father) was trying to relocate the family from Kentucky he claimed to have bought five other farms but were taken away because he never paid for them. That 's how they ended up in Indiana because he had the money to pay for a little house in the woods. This did actually surprise me because I thought that Abraham grew up in his home cabin with his mom and dad in Kentucky. Really he lived in Indiana with his dad
Oscar Wilde once wrote, “Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world”. Dreams hold the inner workings of one’s thoughts. According to Wilde’s words, dreams have the power to give one new ideas and solutions to problems. This concept of dreams is vital to the development of Antonio Màrez-Luna in the novel Bless Me, Ultima.
When registering for this class, a wave of worry ran through me, because I had minimal skill when it came to writing, particularly in the field of formal writing. The high school I attended was academically poor, we never wrote formal papers, just informal book and movie responses. Therefore I was apprehensive about this class. This course was quite intricate, but I attend skills that will aid me for the rest of my academic career. Rhetorical knowledge, critical inquiry, process, and conventions are all concepts I have acquired.
Spiegelman with his brilliant usage of vivid imagery that portrayed the actual actions and phenomena of his and his peers including his father in a graphic way was absolutely fantastic. With the use of non-human imagery, the audience were still made to see capture a mental understanding of the descriptive words that were supported by the imagery that accompanied them page by page. He said quote ‘It was during summer I think I was ten or eleven”, and this quotation was vividly supported by the imagery presented on page 4 where the inhuman creatures were smaller than they are in other pictures, this is to depict to us that was very young during those skating time. The audience were able to clearly see and mentally understand fully as a result
