English Writing Task “The Hound of the Baskervilles” The character we’re writing about is Sir Henry Baskerville. Sir Henry Baskerville is a “small, eager, dark-eyed man”, who has “thick dark hair and is sunburnt, like one who has spent most of his time in the open air.” He is not married and has a farm (which is not mentioned in this book, therefore we had to do some research on our own) in Canada “we inquired for this young gentleman, and found out that he had been working in Canada”. After the sudden and mysterious death of his uncle Sir Charles, Sir Henry is known to be the last living relative of the departed man and therefore the heir of the Baskerville estate and fortune. Yet later it turns out, that Stapleton, who was a good friend of Sir Charles, is in fact a Baskerville - the son of Sir …show more content…
But Sir Henry 's good luck doesn 't change the fact that he 's got a scheming murderer after him and that the one girl to whom he 's given his heart happens to be married to that murderer. And even though Beryl is the wife of the murderer, and as her husband believes “in this together”, she tries to help Sir Henry save his life by sending the mysterious letter, that baffles him at first “I know that you think out little mysteries, and I’ve had one that I cannot solve. It is this letter, you can call it a letter, which reached me this morning.”, but catches the attention of Detective Sherlock Holmes, who soon sheds light on the explanation behind the mysterious letter, whose content seemed like a threat at first. Sir Henry is very important to the book, because without the dangers that hovered upon him and without the attempted murder of killing him, Holmes and Mr.Watson would have never found out the murderer of Sir Charles and possibly the priest James Desmond, who would have been the heir of the Baskerville estate and fortune in case something happened to the initial inheritor - Sir Henry, and therefore possibly the next victim of

She will emphasize a point she made around 200 pages before. This did not especially inconvenience me in light of the fact that I felt that she was effectively giving so as to express the idea in a more prominent accentuation. The book is a touch longer than it should have been too. Despite the fact that the general population in this book alongside the various transients were looking for a superior life in the north, the fight for correspondence was long from over and the absolute most intriguing parts of the book for me were their encounters in the north. I took in an awesome arrangement perusing the book.

Julia Shanley Overton English 11 Honors- Period 4A 10/25/15 Huckleberry Finn Argument Essay Jim, a trusted slave by the household of Widow Douglas, is also a very gullible one. He displays several examples of cockiness, foolishness, and is made out to be some kind of comedic relief in the beginning of the story. When Jim is introduced, he is misinterpreted as non realistic due to his vast unawareness. This is proven many times throughout the book to not be true. Jim is actually one of the most important leading roles in the story due to his countless positivity to make things out to be not as terrible as they seem to be.
The book explores several themes including self- discovery, loyalty, courage and the magic of reading. The magic of reading is developed through the founding of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. Dawesy writes to Juliet after reading one of her old books for a Society meeting. Their relationship starts as two bibliophiles discussing books through letters. After spending time in Guernsey, Juliet proposes to Dawesy and the two wed. “But she didn’t what she said was ‘Would you like to marry me?’…I’m in love with you
Anthony Hill describes the Main character, James Martin as “a strong little boy, nearly five feet four inches tall and still growing. And he was a good eater”. (pg 25) By describing what James Martin looks like Anthony Hill creates an image in the reader's mind, as the reader is trying to picture young James Martin. Anthony Hill also uses setting to help describe his characters, explaining to the reader where James Martin was from and what it was like for him as a young boy.
In the seventeenth century England, fifteen year old James Matthew, Oppidan Scholar, arrived at Eton resenting every aspect, and even more so when he met Arthur Darling. Arthur was a Colleger who immediately took a disliking to James, due to his arrogant disposition and cascading mass of dark curls combined with piercing blue eyes. James was the illegitimate son of Lord B, the Queen’s man to carry out her orders. Though connected to nobles and nobility, for all that meant, James was only able to count the number of times he had seen his father on one hand. He was ignored by his father on most occasions, so he was raised by his Aunt Emily, one of the few people in the world he truly admired.

Rationale: For this task, I created a diary because I think that this style of writing would be an extremely effective way to show another major character’s emotions and ideas, as it can be written from a first person perspective, giving a huge amount of insight. I based my task on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe, titled “The Tell-Tale Heart.” I chose this piece as it gives the opportunity to be very creative in my writing, but also introduces various constraints, such as writing in a similar style to Poe, and trying to avoid any plot holes. This task specifically relates to part 4 of the language and literature course, being; literature, as the stimulus text is a piece of literature, as is my piece of writing.
In Zora Neale Hurston’s short story, “John Redding Goes to Sea”, the main character John Redding struggles with standing out in his small hometown. This theme can also be seen several times throughout many other works in modern society. Two of which being John Green’s Paper Towns and Footloose. All of these stories focus on the ideas of a coming of age story – and how to find who you really are in the real world.
Their romance is evidently quite intimate, as Elizabeth feels Henry important enough to embark on a strange and potentially perilous journey to locate him – even after Dr. Waldman informs her that Henry has lost his mind. The fact that Elizabeth, despite these grave warnings, presses on anyways in pursuit of him, suggests their intimacy, which in turn suggests his genuine attraction to

Along with a bad first impression of each other, another obstacle they face is Mrs. Bennett’s interest in Elizabeth marrying for money and not for love. Mrs. Bennett wants her daughters to have the wealthiest husband they can find, which is why her daughters went to Mr. Bingley’s
We can claim that Rhys’s main aim was to remove Bertha from the character of the non-identified wife locked away in Thornfield, give her the proper soul and identity, inform about her childhood and youth, thus the reader will understand her state of mind in Jane Eyre and will not consider her only the insane Rochester’s wife, but as Antoinette Cosway. Obviously, Jean Rhys removed the cover of the mystery from the eerie, unhuman laugh and screams of the unknown character in Jane Eyre and showed their new, more rational and surprising origin. Moreover, Rhys enabled the reader to understand the reasons of Bertha’s madness and her hopeless condition and hoped her character will no more arouse the aversion, but sympathy and mercy. Evidently, the novel is narrated from
First, director David Attwood portrays characters differently in his production of The Hound of The Baskervilles, than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle does in his novel. For example, the character Stapleton, who is the villain in this story, is seen to be a bit strange, but not at all a murderer. He is seen as a suspect just like the rest of the suspects, although the reader knows about his crazy antics. For example Stapleton is meeting Dr. Watson and Sir Henry Baskerville when he sees a moth-like bug and chases after it. Watson recalls, “A small fly or moth had fluttered across our path and in an instant Stapleton was rushing with extraordinary energy and speed of pursuit of it” (Doyle, 100).
Wickham manages to turn a majority of the characters in the novel against Mr. Darcy. He shapes the story into a cry for pity for himself due to the wrongdoings done to him by Darcy. Somehow, Mr. Darcy remains the better man, refusing to let his anger overtake him and in the end acting as a savior to the Bennett family name. Although he was never deceived himself, Mr. Darcy takes the hits from Mr. Wickham’s deception of others. Jane Austen, author of Pride and Prejudice, pulls on the heartstrings of readers, sending them on a rollercoaster of emotions and sympathy for first Mr. Wickham and then Mr.
