There are a lot of occult information, and names related to occult, that anyone who has no in depth knowledge, or at least, an encyclopedia with them, will immediately get lost about the connections between events, details and quotations mentioned in the novel. However, the action and thrill in the novel are not lost in the compendium of occult matters. The way the author
When reading a book such as Crossed, by Ally Condie, readers often notice elements that make the connection to the story deeper. Having knowledge in elements from the chapters “Every trip is a quest (except when it’s not)”, “Geography Matters”, and, “Is That a Symbol?” in Thomas Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor For Kids makes for a richer experience when reading Ally Condie’s Crossed. The first element from How To Read Literature Like A Professor For Kids found in Ally Condie’s Crossed is Chapter one, “Every Trip Is A Quest (Except For When It’s Not)”. Cassia runs away from her original home and does everything in her power to find her true love, Ky. Cassia explains, “Ky is heavy in my mind, deep in my heart, his palms warm on my empty hands. I have to try and find him” (Condie 60).
Even though Mary Surratt was hanged she still deserved a better sentence as she did not get a fair trial against her. Mary Surratt was never included in the assassination, because evidence from Kingseed’s article, “Booth also left behind evidence exculpating Mary in the assassination.” Also a testimony from Lewis Paine, otherwise known as Lewis Powell from Jame Swanson’s book Chasing Lincoln’s
This was a really fine written book, showing a great deal of value in remembering the past and the importance of family. And the movie was portrayed extremely accomplished, even though there were alterations that I didn’t appreciate. In my opinion, the book was superior over the movie, describing in depth the suffering and sadness in the camp effectively, which the movie did not, and developing the characters in a suitable way. I would recommend this to anyone who delights in history along with fiction. It contains the reality of the holocaust while including fictional characters and plot lines.
Human nature is naturally good but influence compels us to commit deeds we never would have considered.For example, Eve picking the forbidden fruit . Now as I’m sure many know this story. It could be argued that Eve knowingly opened Pandora's box and exiled humans to be less than perfect. But in truth Eve shows humanity was innocent from the very beginning. She could not have known the malice intentions of the serpent because of her inexperience on Earth.
Textual Quotation and Technique (1): “It would have been impossible, completely and entirely, for any woman to have written the plays of Shakespeare in the age of Shakespeare.” This is a persuasive strategy because Virginia states her claim and wants the reader to believe it. My Bounce: Virginia is stating her claim that women could not write anything during that time. She comes up with this claim by examining the age of Shakespeare and the declaration of a Bishop, she quotes this Bishop as evidence. My Connection: Virginia previously gave the viewpoint of a Bishop and said that her above claim was inspired by the words of the Bishop. Virginia builds on this claim in her argument.
The most brilliant controversial works of art are often banned and kept hidden from the lives of young children, adolescences and sometimes adults. Mark Twain’s notorious ‘Huckleberry Finn’ uses literature as an incredible tool in addressing certain aspects of the society. This provokes a troubling yet satisfying tension between the reader and the narrator. Mark Twain represents the societal crisis, racism, in a factious novel by illustrating the issue of racism in a way that portrays reality as infinitely more horrifying. Before beginning to discuss the artistic and political importance of “Huckleberry Finn” I feel that one must look at the book itself and the time in which it was written.
Literature is composed with many thoughts and ideas, the limitations are miniscule. For example, Sylvia Plath formulated her experiences and time period into a plot to compose her novel. As the book progresses, the protagonist provides insight on her journey and struggle to find happiness. In The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath utilizes an autobiographical protagonist to express purity versus impurity, as well as mind versus body in a world of double standards. Before one understands how Plath's experiences were influential upon her writing, it is crucial to know about her as an individual.
I think because I am older and now familiar with critically reading texts that I am able to understand and interpret the novel on a deeper, more intellectual level. Instead of labeling Gatsby as only a love story, I can now analyze and discuss the various themes and topics that the novel explores. I believe that this is one of the aspects that makes The Great Gatsby a classic, that when read at each stage of life, from adolescence to adulthood, the novel is able to take on a different meaning. As a high school teen, I understood the novel to be a romance, however, now I understand it in a completely different
In the stories “Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allen Poe, and “The Storm” by Kate Chopin both authors used literary devices such as motif, similes, and metaphors to convey meaning in their stories. In these two stories, the author’s use of literary elements triggers the reader’s senses and captures them emotionally. Although they bear some minor similarities, such as referencing their stories using symbolism and maintaining the same concept theme. The differences between the captivating stories are that they both express a different variety of literary elements.
Mary Beth Norton seems to have entered into a single-minded telling, trying to link the Indian wars as the sole answer to “Essex County Witch Trials”. The French and Indians were involved in an up rise of accusations, sure. But Norton’s reasoning behind how the Indian wars had not happened, maybe these trials would not have occurred, does not make sense. Norton tries to wiggle her out of it by stating that she does not believe that the Second Indian War caused these trials but that it “created the conditions that allowed the crisis to develop as rapidly and as extensively as it did.” As an example she uses “repeated spectral sightings of the black man” and “establishes a crucial connection” found throughout records on Salem, as a direct link
In the Crucible there are no actual dates of when the witch trials actually took place. Since the story is taking place in the days of early settlement the story can not be proven or disproven. But, since the fear of witches and the devil was real in those times then I can say that Salem Witch Trials might have happened, but , this specific set of incidents did not. According to act one in the crucible “ But Betty collapses in her hands and lies inert on the bed. (I.113-132)” this quote shows how this story is non-fiction because of the detailed words.
A cover never does a book justice. It can either be very misleading to the reader or portray a differing feeling that he or she might expect. This is thoroughly present throughout Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Actuality differs what one sees when situations are changed, hidden, or revealed in another aspect. The full understanding of this process is found in Scout Finch’s narration of the novel when events unfold into their actual form.
Considering the many different literary devices used in creating writing, I have chosen several distinct elements, setting, theme, point of view and characterization. These particular devices are essential elements in my toolkit. As a realistic fiction writer the four elements serve a purpose and together they should craft an interesting story. As a result, my first important foundational tool is setting. If the writer cannot capture the reader 's attention through the creative backdrop, settings, then the foundation is not buildable and my story may be weak and uninteresting.
She’s uh woman and her place is in de home.” In reality, Jody was right, Janie never cared or thought to make a speech for the public, but the fact that Jody Starks was the one to decide for her, gave Janie a “cold” (pg. 61) sensation that ran through her spine, for she knew that this change may not bring the joy and passion she once presumed. As mayor, Jody allowed those around him (including his wife) become aware of the power and authority he had over any being both mentally and economically. To the town’s folks, it seemed that slavery had once again emerged from depths of their own flesh and color, “they had murmured hotly about slavery being over, but every man filled his assignment”
