In the autobiography, Farewell to Manzanar, Woody Wakatsuki, the main character's brother, shows actions that reveal who he is as a character. Woody is always positive and lighthearted, even at the hardest of times. The first way that Woody shows his lighthearted attitude is when he jokes around. "'You get those covered up before breakfast time. Any more sand comes in here through one of them knotholes, you have to eat it off the floor with ketchup"' (Wakatsuki-Huston 25).
In the first stanza, the poem begins with a quote from the poet’s English teacher (Hughes 1-4): Go Home and write A page tonight And let that page come out of you- Then it will be true Name 2 The teacher advises the students to write for the heart so that their pieces may be true. Nonetheless, in the next stanza, Langston Hughes, professes doubt to this piece of advice because he believes that he is different from all the other students. He
Or maybe the union really has all the control. Wile E. Coyote This is Bad Boys Pistons-era tomfoolery from both sides. If he doesn’t get control of this game, somebody is going to get seriously injured. Pepe Le Pew Maurice LaMarche known as Pepe Le Pew, should be in the
2). This quote shows how Curley automatically went to Lennie because he was bigger than he was and said that he needed to answer when he is spoken to. The second time Curley picks on Lennie is when Lennie is in the bunkhouse smiling and laughing about the idea of their little farm. Curley thought that Lennie was laughing at him so he went to Lennie and started to punch him and beat him up. Curley said, “What the hell you laughin’ at?” (62; ch.3).
The short but concrete statement following the striking imagery elucidates to the importance of food, for Shukhov would perilously place it first in dangerous situations. Breakfast is not the only time Solzhenitsyn changes the tone when food is present, but also before dinner. The narrator constructs the scene outside the mess hall as a pile of “gangs...heaving and shoving...as though they were storming a fortress, taking the steps one at a time. Limpy held his staff across his chest like a barrier...and charged the front rank full-tilt...The steps were cleared...and limpy stood on the top step, laying down the law” (Solzhenitsyn 146-147). The narrator collides the reader with warring imagery in this line, changing the tone; signalling the reader to stop and recognize the chaos before dinner.
Kafka critiques modernism and issues of alienation to light through his novella. Gregor Samsa’s situation plays out very quickly. The story begins with “he found him self changed into a monstrous cockroach in his bed.” (Kafka 1204) In a modern world full of politics and where society is all about money, most of the house holds have a breadwinner. Gregor is considered and showed through the novella as the breadwinner for his family. He even mentions that “he felt considerable pride that he had made such a life possible for his parents and his
In that quote Rikki is talking to Nagaina’s husband, Nag. Rikki is firm because he is talking back to someone who he is afraid of. “ Rikki-tikki smashed two eggs, and tumbled backward down the melon bed with the third egg in his mouth, and scuttled to the veranda as hard as he could put foot to the ground.”(Kipling 28) shows that Rikki is an intimidator. Rikki is a mean jerk who murdered unhatched eggs. He also killed the eggs mother and father.This shows that Rikki is a sensible jerk.
In the book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, had plenty of caricatures. Caricatures are characteristics that are over exaggerated in order to create a comic or a grotesque. Mark Twain has written The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with characters that have plenty caricatures, and one of the characters that was easy to spot out is Pap. The examples of pap’s caricatures are very disturbing, with nauseating alcoholism, unpleasant abuse to his son, and finally for inappropriate racism. The first example of pap’s caricatures is alcoholism, the first example in this book is “After supper pap took the jug, and said he had enough whisky there for two drunks and one delirium tremens” (26).
He introduces his idea in the most shocking way possible with his claim that one-year-old babies are “delicious” whether they are stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled. The image of a baby being cooked is very alarming and disturbing. The idea is so extreme that it demonstrates the overall satire of his essay. Swift suggests that he is not the only one prejudiced enough to support the idea of eating Irish children. He gladly states, “A very worthy person was lately pleased in discoursing on this matter to offer a refinement upon my scheme.” This person suggests eating the flesh of fourteen-year-old children in addition to infants.
Throughout my years of writing in high school, I was focusing only on writing to fill the basic requirements to pass English. Over the time interval of the course WRI101, my writing completely transformed. Analytical thinking, balance, and flow were the focal skills taught in WRI101 by Dr. Daniel Fredrick. Through learning about what are considered to be the two most important skills in writing, content and style, I was capable of elevating my writing in a manner that distinguishes it from the typical college paper. From the beginning of the course, I was introduced to novel aspects of writing.
Worried about hurricanes and Middle-East peace, give me a waffle. We all get beaten down, frustrated, angry, and win exhausting victories. There are days of sorrow, moments of guilt, and times of deserving pride. We all need somewhere simple to turn. For me, it’s the waffle, crisp buttermilk and flour.
I learned about thinking intentionally through AP English Language and Composition class. From the beginning of class, we talked about intentionality, both in reading and writing. Reading intentionally means that you are thinking and questioning about how the writer uses that word, phrase, or syntax to build its argument, whereas writing intentionally refers to you are questioning yourself why you choose that word, phrase, or syntax to persuade your audience. In the past two months, I started to think of how the diction build up the tone of the writer, how each sentence and paragraph work rhetorically, and how all these elements together persuade the audience. For example, I would look at the syntax structure.
The students will then place that definition under the flap that corresponds with the vocabulary word. I will continue this process until all of the vocabulary word flaps have definitions. Active Engagement I will then turn the students’ attention to the middle section of their lapbook. We will be creating a map for the fairy tale stories that we have been writing. I will use the class one to demonstrate.
