Vance 's grandparents, Bonnie Blanton and Jim Vance, were born in a little town called Jackson in southeast Kentucky.
The Great Gatsby was a story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and published in April 10, 1925. Several characters within the novel parallel people in Fitzgerald’s life. Through their portrayal in the book, I believe we can piece together bits of Fitzgerald’s life that he would never openly state. I believe that not only is The Great Gatsby Fitzgerald’s coming out story, but also a confession that he doesn’t love his wife and that she doesn’t love him. First, let’s discuss

He explains all of the events that have taken place as a story in the way he remembers them to be, which forces the readers to rely on his word and his word only.

Billy Collins appropriately created the title “Schoolsville” for this poem. The title is broken down and is imagined by readers of a little town occupied by former students who still act as they did in high school. From the beginning line, it is clear to the reader that the speaker is reminiscing his past by “glancing over my shoulder at the past,” (Collins 534). By stating, “I realize the number of students he has taught is enough to populate a small town,” also adds to the image created by the title (Collins 534). The speaker has taught so many years that his former students could populate a town.
It is his idea to break Jadis ' Wand, and without that idea the last battle in the first novel may not have been so successful.

In Voyage of the Dawn Trader, Edmund is described as a boy who likes reading detective stories and figures out the death of a Narnian Lord on Goldwater Island.

Vonnegut as the author and narrator of the novel removes the doubt in the first chapter that not everything we read in Slaughterhouse-Five is true through the first words of the novel: “All this happened, more or less.” This opening line introduce the readers with Vonnegut story mixed with real and fictional events, a future which is blurred by past, time jumps from inner space and outer space and even human ethics verses extraterrestrial morals. Vonnegut managed to create a collision of these strange juxtaposition with true historical events narrated in an ironical voice. Victorious and glorious historical events such as “The Florence on the Elbe”, Sodom and Gomorrah down to WWII are portrayed with a humble language and through multidimensional
Persepolis, a graphic autobiography depicting the life of Marjane Satrapi from her childhood to her adult years and Great Gatsby, a 1925 F. Scott Fitzgerald novel about young and mysterious millionaire Great Gatsby and his obsession for Daisy Buchanan are examples of literary works that are shaped based on the cultural, social, political and historical context of their respective time periods. The effect that the context has on the literary work will be analyzed in this essay. Persepolis is nothing but context. If the context is removed, then there would be no story. The story begins with the life of marjane and ends with her life.
