Huck’s action show that Jim means a lot to him, and Huck will risk everything to get Jim back. In addition, Huck is in a moral dilemma where he must determine if he wants to give up Jim’s location or continue to go down the current path that they are on now. Huck writes a letter to Miss Watson and reveals Jim’s location, but chooses to tear the letter up after thinking about what Jim has done for him. Huck states that he sees Jim “standing my watch on top of his 'n, 'stead of calling me, so I could go on sleeping; and see him how glad he was when I come back out of the fog; and when I come to him again in the swamp, up there where the feud was; and such-like times; and would always call me honey, and pet me and do everything he could think of for me, and how good he always was; and at last I struck the time I saved him by telling the men we had small-pox aboard, and he was
Family; a blessing, or a curse? In the book Night, Elie Wiesel offers many significant themes, but the question, “is family a blessing or a curse,” is one of the most prevalent and begging themes in the novel. During the novel, Wiesel often questions if he should try and keep his father around, or if life would just be better without him in the picture. “‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111).
Through the use of strategic diction and syntax, figurative language and imagery, Elie Wiesel makes the unimaginable horrors incredibly vivid and clear to his readers. Throughout the novel, the short and choppy sentences covey his sense of loss and sense of urgency. As the novel progressed, the complexity of the sentences declined, suggesting that he grew wearier with time. He began to lose his faith, and would likely have succumbed to hopeless exhaustion if he believed that his father was capable of surviving without him. Diction in phrases
The Real Model Boy In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer makes many mistakes but what 's important is that he progresses from them. In life you have two choices, you can lie or tell the truth. At the beginning of the book, Tom thought you needed to lie to get ahead in life, but as the book continued, he learned telling the truth is always better. He went through many schemes and adventures and ran away. When he returned, he realized that things didn 't change and he still faced the same problems.
Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.
I think that the main theme in this poem is that people these days are annoyed on how slowly things go so the author wants all his questions to be answered as fast as possible. In the first stanza the writer mentions that the sloth has no peers. There is an image shown in line two and three in the first stanza. It says “you ask him something in his ear, he thinks for a year”. (Roethke, the sloth).
King perfects this age-old writing tactic and uses it to keep the reader in a constant state of unease, with little to no idea as to how the situation will play out. King will often lead the reader down a certain path only to pull a complete 180 on them and will turn the story on its head, all for the purpose of keeping the reader on their feet. He does this most profoundly with Beverly Marsh. Beverly had been abused by her dad so in her mind it made sense to her that she would eventually marry an abusive husband, and so she did with Tom Rogan. King goes out of his way to establish the history of abuse and mistreatment Beverly has suffered at the hands of the belligerent Tom and he makes it seem like we are about to bare witness to another vicious beating via belt after Tom sees Bev smoking a cigarette.
This struggle is present throughout the novel and creates an important thematic image of natural, free individualism contrasted with the expectations of society. Huck’s frustration continues in his listing all the admonishments he receives from Miss Watson: “ ‘Don’t put your feet up there, Huckleberry’; and ‘Don’t scrunch up like that, Huckleberry—set up straight’; and pretty soon she would say, ‘Don’t gap and stretch like that, Huckleberry—why don’t you try to behave?’ ” (Twain 2). Huck’s repetition enhances his confined feelings and shows how “tiresome and lonesome” he feels after each of cycle of clean clothes, serious meal, spelling lesson, scolding, boredom. Then,
The beauty of literature and the reason why I love it so much is that a writer must eventually relinquish the meaning of his or her book. Therefore everyone who reads it can take something out of it which no one has before. I find that a beautiful notion myself, but it seems that looking for these life lessons has become a less and less popular exercise as the years have gone by. Let it not be forgotten that a true piece of literature, like To Kill a Mockingbird, is meaningful in every period and that today, Atticus Finch's message should be heard in the midst of all the global conflicts that we hear of on the news every
