While this line is also sarcastic, Klosterman is able to enhance the humor of the line with profanity. In Klosterman’s Harry Potter essay, he states, “I honestly don’t give a shit if my assumption is true or false” (“Death by Harry Potter”). Klosterman casually throws around words most professional writers avoid because it fits his style of humor and connects him with readers. Since Klosterman’s essays are already more informal due to his biting sarcasm and hyperbole, his use of curse words only adds to his growing bond with the audience. Modern society has built crass language into our basic vocabulary; Klosterman’s use of profanity presents him as an average person to his audience in order to connect with them.
As the Boov say, “many fingers make up a hand.” Just like this expression, Many components make up effective humor. Adam Rex, the author of the book Smek for President, shows us a perfect example of how not to use them. The tools of humor, such as tone, diction, imagery and more are present, but they don’t make you laugh. Adam Rex, as a “funny author,” leaves much to be desired in his writing. Throughout the book, a certain alien tone is set.
He, too, is often at a disadvantage and uses his own wits and control of language to survive in various circumstances. In some ways he follows the principles of an “underdog” with his somewhat depressing current status. The readers are usually “rooting” for Holden due to the given background knowledge of this kid. They are concerned for him and want him to succeed no matter what he does. On the other hand, Holden approaches his representation of a trickster in a more subtle and innocent manner.
Much like Dale Cooper, Elliot Alderson is considered a Bunny Ears Lawyer. He is good at what he does, despite having personality flaws that prevent him from existing without effort in his society. Elliot’s character is a great example in demonstrating the change in society due to the introduction of the internet. His character suffers from schizophrenia and in turn creates an alter ego that is a more confident and boisterous side to his normal socially anxious self. This concept is like the world that the audience lives in, where people create different, more ideal versions of themselves online.
As a reader I found Barrett a more engaging and likeable character than Taylor. That said, if an author can make the audience dislike a character then that shows strong writing skills because clearly that was the intent. Barrett is always quite optimistic, given the rough circumstances he finds himself in. He is always looking to learn more about wherever he is and intrigued by how modern things work. Barrett is an innocent character because he comes from an eco up-bringing sans the crass commercialism that Taylor
It'll help." (28.4-28.7) Being a good person cannot prevent you from making bad decisions. Will is virtuous throughout the whole novel, and even though he is tempted by impure desires, he stays virtuous. Being a good person isn’t easy and there will always be times that there will be temptation; what matters is whether you let the temptations control you. Through Will in particular, Bradbury makes it possible for any reader to personally connect with this piece because everyone has faced an “evil”
He lets them know what things they ought to avoid and piles divisions for them. The size to feel for the Crakers and even the straightforward capacity to advise stories would have been lost to another individual from the compound society. Jimmy wasn't only the most idealistic equipped man for the employment he was the main man for the occupation. The Crakers worship him and notice his words, and he, in spite of discovering them irritating, helps them in the new world they have been brought
While others bask in their cowardly ambiance, taking shelter is the first thought to cross their mind, Beowulf on the other hand makes true to his word and time after time again slays the terrifying monster. It was almost as if he wasn't afraid of death, and if he thought that maybe he would die he still fought. No matter the circumstance he makes the best out of it and comes out victorious. The integrity and selflessness that Beowulf shows is unmatched by any other. He unlike most other heroes isn't corrupted by the riches and glory that is presented to him.
George does make mistakes concerning Lennie throughout the whole book, but he also attempts to fix his mistakes with acts of kindness. He is a relatable character in many ways, which makes him interesting to read about. George cares for Lennie even when he messes up, which is much like how brothers still care about each other even though they mess up. George and Lennie are the most like brothers that two men can be without actually being brothers. They care for each other, argue over the simplest things, and are usually willing to admit that they need each other.
The monster is observing who he is so he does not feel comepletely unrecognizable to himeself “These thoughts exhilarated me and led me to apply with fresh ardour to the acquiring the art of language. My organs were indeed harsh, but supple; and although my voice was very unlike the soft music of their tones, yet I pronounced such words as I understood with tolerable ease” (Shelley 103). The monster is viewing himself as a compassionate person on the inside but it is overcome by his awful looks. Sometimes not knowing who you are can be one of the worst feelings, especially when you have nobody by your side ti figure it out, in this case the monsters situation. This makes it especially hard because you dont even know yourself, he is just trying to figure his identity
