Over all the book is more than just a collection of the diary and letters mashed together into a book, the author talks about what is going on at the time McClellan is writing his letters before showing them to us, he also helps the reader a lot with footnotes of places, people and events throughput the redaction, also citing his own research within the book, it is easy to read since they are letters and a diary, they were more of a narrative than a regular history book which made it more interesting. The author mainly uses primary sources such as letters, something I found interesting was that the author also picked letters addressed to him. I felt like the author did a great job and made the book really easy to follow, but I felt like the book lacked that attention grasp, it was smooth read and in all honestly not hard, but I always look for a book that grasps my attention for a long time span. When reading this book, even thought the footnotes where at the end of each letter or diary entry it was tedious having to turn the page when I did not know about a concept.

He used the novel to get across many points, but he also introduced a larger theme that is still relevant today: A person’s morals will often differ from what society views as correct. He developed this theme using a variety of literary devices, such as conflict, language, and satire. He seemed to have a great understanding for these devices and how they could impact the story he was portraying. Twain took views that went against society's beliefs, similar to many people at this time, which came across especially in his portrayal of Huck. All things considered, Mark Twain did an excellent job promoting the theme that drove his
This book goes back and forth because it is told from two different people and perspectives so the person who is reading it should have an interest in both parts of the story. They should be able to understand what is happening on both ends, from one extreme to the other and they should be able to read the story as if they were in that person’s shoes. Parallel Journeys is scary and frightening so I recommend this book to a person who can continue reading even after something terrible happens. Since this book was written in the time frame of the 1940’s the person reading should know that it isn’t really recent. This book is a great
Summaries for C.S Lewis, An Experiment in Criticism Leif Coopman English 112 Section 113 Dr. Jon Vickery 2/8/18 Summary of Chapter 1 Here, C.S Lewis explains a experiment as the way one defines a book, as good or bad. He explains that a good book will be read in one way, and a bad book another. Lewis describes the two types of readers: the few and the many.

The literature that the few read is constantly present in their minds, and they tend to repeat lines and stanzas when alone.

The reason Rose may do this is to first put the idea in your head that certain notions need attention, and then goes into detail. Essentially, Rose is saying, “Specifically, the notions about mind and work that need to change are the long-standing notions and seemingly self-evident distinctions among levels of knowledge” (Rose). However, that sentence there is lengthy and does not flow well. The way Rose put it in the text is much more concise and clear. Although Rose’s sentence may have seemed repetitive, it was not, and in fact its second portion was complementary to the
Qualitative research is intimidating to many because it involves talking to people, learning about the culture and language, revising surveys to fit the community’s definitions and views, and revisiting people. With qualitative data, one cannot punch data immediately after the initial interview; this data takes a lot of time to fully gather. Additionally, qualitative data is seen as softer compared to quantitative. Thus when publishing and presenting research, Cropley explains that it is important to be upfront with one’s bias and to be skeptical of one’s own data. The best way to seem valid is to outline the methods and exact steps used and to ensure they are clean.
With the employment of multivariate analysis, the researchers managed to deliver a detailed account of the relationships between different variables. However, explanations on the interplay of variables remain ambiguous in this study. This disadvantage is originated from two aspects. First, it derived from the framework of cross-national comparative design utilized by researchers. Bryman (2015) highlighted that this type of design lacked strong internal validity and was hard to clarify the causality of variables.
